Old Barrhaven West

Old Barrhaven West is bounded by Fallowfield Road to the north, Strandherd Road to the west,  and the CN rail line to the east. Established in the 1960s, Barrhaven was one of a group of new suburban areas built across the Ottawa Greenbelt. The area, owned by Mel Barr, was originally slated to become a horse race track. However, when the Rideau Carleton Raceway opened, Barr opted to develop a new subdivision that was later named after him.
