Corkery real estate guide & listings for sale
Corkery is reasonably quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several louder areas, especially close to Highway 7 or Highway 417. Parks are sparse, which makes them very difficult to access. Despite that, there are a few public green spaces nearby for residents to discover, including Rick Lytle Park.
Driving is very often the favoured way to get around in this part of Ottawa. Coming across a place to park is quite easy. It is very challenging for people walking to navigate this part of Ottawa because almost no common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle. Moving around by bicycle is also difficult in Corkery as there are very few bike lanes, and there are a good number of elevation changes.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of Corkery is an important part of its character.

This part of the city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly 90% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners while the remainder are rented.
There are only a very small number of primary schools in this neighbourhood and thus they can be a very long walk away. Additionally, Corkery does not contain any high schools. In terms of food, property owners in this neighbourhood almost always have to use a car to shop for their groceries.
