Why you're going to love Morgan's Creek

Love the Outdoors? Then You’ll Love Morgan’s Creek.

There’s no shortage of nature in Morgan’s Creek, our newest West End community in Kanata North. Divided by Shirley's Brook and surrounded by green space, this community offers a rare escape for homebuyers looking to plant their roots in Ottawa’s thriving technology hub.

For lovers of the great outdoors, the community’s neighbouring parks are both appealing and accessible. Situated near the junction of Klondike Road and Sandhill Road, Morgan’s Creek is an easy walk or drive to some of Kanata’s most beloved green spaces.

Plenty of space to play.

From tennis and basketball courts to ice rinks and soccer fields, in Morgan’s Creek, you’ll find plenty of outdoor facilities close to home to keep you active and on your game.

Take Klondike Road Park, for example, home to an outdoor ice rink and popular tennis court. Or, even closer to home, there’s Brookshire Park, across the street from South March Public School, complete with a soccer field, basketball court and a splash pad worthy of any kid’s attention.

Also near South March Public School is Juanita Snelgrove Park, named in honour of Juanita Snelgrove, a local resident who dedicated her life to improving the community. Here, you’ll find yet another soccer field, ice rink, and playground interspersed with open-air pathways – the perfect space for a quick game or an evening walk.

Trails for hiking and biking.

If it’s wooded trails you’re after, you’ll find those, too. With the South March Highlands Conservation Forest easily accessible from Klondike Road, a fully immersive outdoor experience is always nearby at Morgan’s Creek.

For cyclists and mountain bikers, the South March Highlands Trail Network offers numerous backcountry trails, with terrain ranging from tame to technical. For hikers, there are just as many options, like the Rockhopper Trail, an approximately 3.6KM loop through the forest that’s great for every skill level. (For a closer look at these trails, explore this interactive map.)

The area is dog friendly, too, but that’s not the only wildlife you’ll see. The conservation forest, often frequented by bird watchers, is home to several species of bird – not to mention the odd beaver building its dam in the pond.

In short, if you’re looking to let a little nature into your life, Morgan’s Creek could be the perfect fit for you and your family. Don’t miss your chance to find your next home in beautiful Kanata North.
