Barrhaven Community Overview

Barrhaven is bounded by Fallowfield Road to the north, Strandherd Road to the south, Greenbank Road to the east, and Cedarview Road to the west. Established in the 1960s, Barrhaven was one of a group of new suburban areas built across the Ottawa Greenbelt. The area, owned by Mel Barr, was originally slated to become a horse race track. However, when the Rideau Carleton Raceway opened, Barr opted to develop a new subdivision that was later named after him.  Here is an infographic that describes Barrhaven as a Village of 100 (2011 data)
