Hunt Club is a community in the south end of Ottawa. The area is named after the prestigious Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club, which has been part of the area since 1876. Hunt Club Road and many local businesses were also named after the golf course.
Hunt Club is located just north of the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport and to the east of the Rideau River. The Hunt Club Community Organization defines the boundaries as the Rideau River to the west, the CP Prescott rail line now used by the O-Train Trillium Line to the east, the CN Albion line and Via Rail Beachburg Subdivision to the north, and the boundary of the old City of Ottawa to the south. The population of the area is about 12,546 (2016 Canada Census).
16% of its 590 ha area is publicly accessible green space. It has 7 city parks: Cahill, McCarthy, Owl, Paul Landry, Riverwood, Uplands, and Uplands Riverside. In addition, many of its residents live in townhouse co-ops and condos that have their own community centers and recreational facilities, and some are members of the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club with access to their 87 ha green space. It has three times the green space as the Ottawa average, including the Sawmill Creek wetlands and Rideau River shoreline.
It has a widely mixed demographic in age groups, ethnocultural backgrounds, socio-economic levels and family set ups. It includes single dwellings, semi-detached and townhouse units, apartment buildings, retirement homes, and an exceptional number of co-ops and condos that offer rent-to-income housing and village-like living. Its housing ranges from million dollar mansions to three Ottawa Community Housing projects.
