Stonebridge, Hearts Desire, Chapman Mills, Half Moon Bay….Longfields. All neighbourhoods in what is known as Barrhaven. This community thrives off of location with great access to the rest of Ottawa due to amazing public transportation. However, you really don’t need to go anywhere else as Barrhaven really does have all of the amenities you could need close at hand. For this blog, we are going to focus on one of the most central neighbourhoods of Longfields. 

Longfields is part of the large neighbourhood known as Longfields/Davidson Heights and really forms the heart of Barrhaven. During the late 90s, Barrhaven began its most recent expansion (aside from its original founding) and Longfields was a large part of this. This area is a mix of residential homes, greenspaces, an amazing selection of schools as well as mixed use commercial plazas providing endless amenities for the area’s residents. There is a mix of single family homes, semi-detached home and townhomes. Currently the neighbourhood is seeing some growth in the form of stacked condos as well. The majority of residents are families that are married with children, thus the amount of parks and greenspaces available along with the great school selection. Businesses are also integrating into this community, further making it an ideal spot to move. People can now walk to a cafe, grocery store, pharmacy, restaurant or fast food.

Great access to amenities is enjoyed by all with numerous greenspaces, medical clinics, restaurants, library, pharmacies, grocery stores, retail shops, boutiques, big box stores and a large variety of places of worship…there is something for every walk of life. That being said, there are also numerous retirement residences in the area as well, both established well-known ones as well as some newer ones.
