This Month’s Neighbourhood Feature: Osgoode
Osgoode Village is wonderful community located south of Manotick and west of Greely. Homes prices are still a great bargain in the area and many are perfect for renovating. The main street offers a grocery store, an arena, a public school, a gas station/LCBO/Beer Store and a great pub called the Red Dot Café. During the spring – fall seasons, La Cantina is open and serves some of the most delicious Mexican street food I have ever tasted! Vibration Studios is also on the main street and offers live music, coffee, drinks and more. Pick your own apples at the Log Cabin Orchard or take home a delicious pie. They also have pumpkins in the fall and Christmas trees in December. Osgoode is full of beautiful walking and biking trails that go on for miles and miles. A day trip to Osgoode is highly recommended!
