< Ottawa Neighbourhood Guide

Elmvale Acres Shopping Centre-Hawthorne Park is a community in south Ottawa.

It was part of the former city of Gloucester before becoming part of the city of Ottawa. Today the residents of the community are mainly English speaking but almost a little less than a quarter of the population speak French primarily. The community has many recreational facilities and a wide range of housing options, including single family homes, apartments, and condos.
