Carlington is a residential neighbourhood in the city of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It’s boundaries are:

  • North boundary:  Carling Avenue from Fisher Avenue to Clyde Avenue.
  • West boundary:  Straight south along the line of Clyde Avenue,  from Carling Avenue until the NCC bicycle path.
  • South boundary:  The NCC bicycle path eastwards from the line of Clyde Avenue until Merivale Road.
  • East boundary:  Fisher Avenue, from Carling Avenue to the NCC bicycle path by Trent Avenue

It is known for having many “war homes” or “veteran homes”, built for returning soldiers after World War II. Many street names reflect this military history.

Another landmark is the Carlington Hill. Formerly it had a ski tow lift; now it is an approved City of Ottawa sledding site.

Carlington is quite a large community in the Ottawa region; the number of amenities we have reflects that.
