Welcome to Avalon, Orléans, a master-planned community 20 years in the making. Over 5,000 homeowners live here, from new families to new Canadians to friendly Ottawans just like you. And there's room for more!

Avalon continues to grow, with Avalon West bringing superbly designed Townhomes to Ottawa east. The best part? New homeowners to the community have direct access to the established amenities of the other communities in Avalon – Avalon Aquaview, Avalon Encore and Avalon Vista.

Ponds, parks, pathways and green space

Avalon Aquaview (now sold out) is designed around manicured pathways and the beautiful green space of Aquaview Park. The park is complete with a basketball court, play structures and a community centre. Avalon Aquaview also features a tranquil pond, perfect for an afternoon picnic or a peaceful stroll. 

Avalon Encore is home to the largest park in Avalon. Dan Boudria Park features a baseball diamond, a multi-purpose court for year-round sports, a shade structure, games tables and an enclosed dog park. Ouellette Park and Henri-Rocque Park are located in Avalon Encore, too, with each offering its own unique elements – like the summer splash pad and an outdoor skating rink in the winter.

Avalon Vista features a large pond, as well, with a network of pathways winding through the surrounding green space. Vista Park is located just north of the community, while Henri-Rocque Park is situated on the west side of Tenth Line Road. 

In Avalon West, Ouellette Park is next to the community, while Aquaview Pond is right across Tenth Line Road. Plus, you have access to all the other parks in the area – like Lakeridge Park, Allegro Park and the expansive François Dupuis Recreation Centre.
