Greely real estate guide & listings for sale
Most areas in Greely are very quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour. Parks aren't well-situated, which makes it rather challenging to get to them from most locations in this part of Ottawa. Still, there are approximately 10 parks close by for residents to explore, such as Osgoode Gardens and Doug Thompson Pathway.
This area is an extremely good part of Ottawa for travelling by car. It is very easy to park. It is very difficult for pedestrians to navigate Greely as almost no daily needs can be met by walking. Moving around by bicycle is also occasionally challenging in this part of Ottawa as the cycling infrastructure is not very extensive, and there are a fair number of hills.
In Greely, the vast majority of dwellings are single detached homes, while townhouses are the main alternative in the housing stock. This part of the city is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Roughly 95% of the properties in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and 5% are occupied by renters.

Some, but not all, property owners in this part of Ottawa will reside within walking distance of the nearest supermarket. There are also a few restaurants in Greely.
