Finding Us

Proposed border

Please note that the boundary as shown on the following map and described in the caption is not a legal boundary. It is intended only as a guideline to indicate the area of greatest interest to members of the Lincoln Heights-Parkway Community Association. We believe the area within these bounds to be essential and characteristic parts of our neighbourhood. We share this area with many other communities.

New proposed boundaries: read caption 2 for full description

Caption 1: Our community's area of interest is bounded on the north by the Ottawa River (including all of the Mud Lake Conservation Area and the Britannia Water Purification Plant), the Ottawa River Parkway to the East, the north side of Regina lane to the south and the east side of Croydon Avenue (including Regina Street School, Lincoln Heights Park, and the western boundary of Mud Lake Conservation Area) to the West. It includes all the residences within those bounds, including the apartments of Richmond Park Square.

We are close to the Lincoln Heights Galleria, the Lincoln Fields Transitway Station, Britannia Beach and Lakeside Gardens.
