Bridlewood

Settled in the early 19th century, Kanata’s Bridlewood-Emerald Meadows neighbourhood is bordered by the Greenbelt in the north, Hope Side Road in the south, the Greenbelt and Richmond Road to the east, and Eagleson Road to the west. The area remained mainly agricultural until residential development began in the 1970’s.

Katimavik-Hazeldean

In 1866 Hazeldean was a small village with a population of about 50 people, in the Goulbourn Township. Located in this tiny village was a general store; one common school with an average attendance of 24 students, and one church.

Glen Cairn is one of the areas in Katimavik and is the home of A.Y. Jackson Secondary School, the only public high school in the Katimavik-Hazeldean area.

Glen Cairn

The spirit of the community started with developer Bill Connelly adding in the ‘extras’ – like buried hydro lines – at a time when other builders wouldn’t. Connelly built most of the early part of Glen Cairn in the mid 1960’s. Bungalows, split levels and 2 storey homes are all located on large lots and tree-lined mature yards. With a public pool, library, tennis courts as well as the Jack Charron Arena, Glen Cairn is a wonderful community in which to raise your children, or to downsize upon retirement.
