Katimavik, Kanata

< Ottawa Neighbourhood Guide

Katimavik is one of the original communities in Kanata and was created as a way to join two areas in the City of Kanata together. The Commmunity Association was formed and received legal status in 1980. The Katimavik portion of the neighbourhood was constructed as a replica of Beaverbrook-Kanata just North of Highway 417. The original community construction centred around both sides of Castlefrank Road near McCurdy and Tamblyn Crescent and Bernier Terrace preserved the traditional identification of Hazeldean. The neighbourhood is primarily English speaking and has nineteen restaurants and eight bars.
