We are the communities of Fisher Heights, Orchard Park, Parkwood Hills North, and Skyline in central Ottawa just to the south of the western end of the experimental farm. We are bordered by Merivale Road, Baseline Road, Fisher Avenue, and Meadowlands Drive. It’s a beautiful spot filled with quiet residential streets, well-cared for townhomes and apartment buildings, and small parks and playgrounds tucked in peacefully between the busy shopping plazas of Merivale Road and the bus routes and major arteries that can quickly get you downtown or out of town.
Farmland just two to three generations ago, we are now home to more than 6,000 people living in almost 2,500 dwellings. If you’re interested in a more detailed portrait of our area, the city of Ottawa recently did a comprehensive study on the neighbourhood. Residents of the community are represented by the Fisher Heights & Area Community Association (FHACA).
