Osgoode is a large village within the city of Ottawa Ontario located just south of Manotick and east of the Rideau River.
It was originally part of Osgoode Township but it became part of the City of Ottawa in 2001. Originally called Osgoode Station, its name was shortened to Osgoode in 1962.
Notable landmarks of the community include the Stuart Holmes Arena inside the Osgoode Community Center. The local mall, post office, general store, library and the new Multi-Purpose Pathway are all ready for you and your families to explore.
A much-loved local restaurant The Red Dot Cafe, is nestled in the center of the village. Their fine country dining eatery is always visited by its village locals and also attracts many people from the city and the surrounding areas. It’s open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Friday and for breakfast, lunch and dinner every Saturday and Sunday. For the residents, our local FOODLAND is just a stone throws away where you will be greeted by the friendliest of people and be able to stock up on your favorite grocery items. There is a Medical, Dental, Physiotherapy Clinic and Pharmacy all nestled together for easy access to each of them and their professional knowledge will always put you at ease. Our local general store Raymonds has one of the few remaining full serve gas bars and once you gas up and get your lotto, you can browse their well stocked wine shelves and beer cooler.
The adult and youth minor hockey-loving population in the community are a big part of life here in the village. Throughout the fall and winter the Stuart Holmes arena is by far one of the busiest locations in town. Hockey is indeed an important part of the fabric that makes up the Village of Osgoode. Both adult and youth softball leagues are also very active in the summer months and almost every night of the week, they can be seen playing on the Osgoode Village Park softball diamonds.
The Village of Osgoode supports a youth centre that is organized and run by the Osgoode Youth Association (O-YA). It’s staff are young energetic people who will help to enrich the quality of life for youth ages 7 – 18. O-YA is dedicated to harnessing the community to deliver a rich variety of programs and services aimed at prevention, education, skill building, inspiration, socialization and recreation; supporting young people in their development as successful, independent and involved citizen
Osgoode has approximately 1550 residential homes and growing! Children of yesterday are making the village their home of today for its one of a kind rural setting and quiet peaceful country living. Surrounding Osgoode Village are many Family Farms that have been passed down from generation to generation and a quiet walk down their gravel roads will give you an opportunity to see the many wildlife animals the area has to offer. Keep a sharp eye out and bring some binoculars for a chance to see White-Tail Deer or Wild Turkey, they are yet some of the few that can be seen roaming the many fields and forests around us.
