Whitehaven is a neighbourhood located in Bay Ward in the west end of Ottawa, about 10 kilometres west of downtown. It is bounded by Carling Avenue to the north, Fairlawn Avenue to the east, the OC Transpo Transitway to the west and highway 417 to the south.
Whitehaven was developed on the lands of Fox farm starting in the 1950s. The Fox farm homestead can still be found on Fox Crescent in the north part of the neighbourhood with its windmill tower now shaded by a large tree.
The south west side of the neighbourhood contains a large park with a playground, with schools including D. Roy Kennedy Public School, Woodroffe High School, and a French primary school, called Terre des Jeunes.
Whitehaven has plenty of transportation links, green space and shopping centres. The Carlingwood and Lincoln Fields shopping malls are within walking distance of the neighbourhood. Both shopping centres are serviced extensively by OC Transpo with Lincoln Fields being serviced by the Lincoln Fields Transit Station on the Transitway
Whitehaven is also connected locally to a network of bike paths with direct access to downtown Ottawa.
