Ottawa Area & Neighbourhood Information
Lindenlea is one of Ottawa's smallest neighbourhoods and was the earliest planned community in Ottawa, established at the end of World War I.
It is bordered by Maple Lane to the north, Acacia Avenue to the east, Beechwood Avenue to the south, and Springfield Road to the west. Neighbouring communities include Rockcliffe Park (north and east), Vanier (south), and New Edinburgh.
Designed in the "garden suburb" style, most of the homes have large backyards and mature trees. The community is noted for its plentiful green space and wide variety of architectural styles. Lindenlea has an active community association, in addition to a children's park, tennis courts, bowling green, and a community centre.
The green spaces and a novel street layout have made it attractive to families seeking a quiet place to live near the downtown core. Most of the small houses in the neighbourhood have received renovations. The community has ensured trees are protected and local roads remain narrow to slow traffic.
