The 10 Best Things About Quinn’s Pointe
Thinking of calling Quinn’s Pointe home? Here are 10 of the best things about this growing Barrhaven community.
1. Minto Recreation Complex is Quinn’s Pointe homeowner’s one-stop-shop for endless recreational and community activities. Besides being the location of past Minto Communities’ Family Day events, the Minto Recreation Complex has something for everyone. Whether you want to learn to swim or sign up for a session or two of aquatic aerobics, the 25m long, six-lane lap pool has been ranked among the top 10 indoor pools in Canada by Chatelaine Magazine. The Complex’s two NHL-sized ice rinks hold tournaments, family and pubic skates, team games and pick-up hockey. There is an outdoor field for team sports and a number of community events taking place year-round.
2. Want to stretch your legs a little closer to home? Guinness Park is at the heart of Quinn’s Pointe and has so much to offer children and adults alike. Kids can burn off energy on the play equipment, or cool down in the summer months in the splash pad. Embrace your inner Serena Williams on the tennis court or practice your FIFA moves on the field. Slow the pace down with a picnic on the grass or an evening stroll along the multi-use paths that connect the park to the rest of the community.
3.

5. It’s easy to get around when you live in Quinn’s Pointe. The community might be tucked away from Ottawa’s downtown core, but access to the 416, major OC Transpo stations and park & rides, and Fallowfield’s VIA station couldn’t be closer.

Pack some trail mix, put on your hiking boots and hop on the Old Quarry and Stony Swamp trails for an invigorating 13.5km nature walk.

9. Something that Minto Communities takes very seriously is our connection to the greater Ottawa community. In Quinn’s Pointe, we have honoured three of Ottawa’s best and bravest by naming streets after them. You’ll find Robin Easey Avenue and Ralph Erfle Way in Quinn’s Pointe, named after two police officers injured in the line of duty in 1984, Alex Polowin Avenue, named after a WWII Navy veteran, and Lynn Coulter Street, named after former Ottawa Justice of the Peace.
10. We’re saving the best for last. We’re working hard to bring even more homes in Quinn’s Pointe to life. Coming soon to the community, not only will we have new Single Family Homes and Townhomes (and brand new designs), there will be four new Executive Model Townhomes to walk-through this winter so you can get a feel for Minto home design and the possibilities in your own home.
