Shopping & Amenities in
Hunt Club

One of the biggest conveniences of residing in Hunt Club is the proximity to the airport. You are mere minutes away from Ottawa International Airport (YOW).

And although much of Hunt Club is residential, you can easily find everything you need a short distance from where you live. For example, you are never far from a medical office, the post office or a local store. Several shopping centres in and around Hunt Club have everything most locals need. Or, simply head to neighbouring communities, like Blossom Park or South Keys, just minutes away for additional necessities. 

Hunt Club Market Place: Home to T&T Asian Supermarket—the biggest Asian market in Ottawa—and many interesting eateries (from simple Subway sandwiches to more eclectic options), this shopping plaza draws folks to the Hunt Club area.

Hunt Club Centre: This cozy neighbourhood shopping centre has everything you need; you can do your banking, get your groceries, stop by the Shoppers Drug Mart or dine at the local pub.

South Keys Shopping Centre: For the most extensive variety in the Hunt Club area, head to the South Keys Shopping Centre. You’ll be greeted with big box stores, banks, several restaurants, a Staples store, a book store, Loblaws for your groceries, and several popular clothing stores. Also, the Greenboro transit station is located north end of the shopping complex.

Towngate Mall: Visit the Towngate Shopping Plaza for a variety of shops, restaurants and stores, including a popular middle-eastern supermarket called Sultan Meat Shop & Grocery.

Parks in Hunt Club

The golf course isn’t the only place you’ll find green spaces; you are never far from one of seven town parks in Hunt Club. Also, the community is home to the Sawmill Creek Wetlands, which features bike and pedestrian paths that surround a beautiful reservoir teeming with wildlife.

Cahill Park

Cahill Park is located in a residential area of Hunt Club, about a ten-minute walk from bigger McCarthy Park. You’ll find swings, slides and play structures near the entrance along Twyford Street. Benches are conveniently placed near where little ones play.

McCarthy Park

Conveniently situated next to the Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre, McCarthy Park has something for everyone. You’ll find sports fields, baseball diamonds, play structures, a basketball court and a wooded area with trails to explore. (If you look closely, you might even find a faerie garden hidden within!) During the colder months, an outdoor skating rink appears for some wintertime fun. Parking is available at the community centre off Paul Anka Drive.

Owl Park

Nestled between two Hunt Club community schools, Owl park is a favourite for tennis and pickleball enthusiasts. It also boasts jungle gyms, swings and a large splash pad to keep kids busy in the summertime. An abundance of trees offers many shady spots to escape front the sun. And this park doesn’t lose its appeal during the winter—an ice rink is set up for skating and hockey games. Also, there is a small hill perfect for tobogganing.

Paul Landry Park

It may be one of the smaller parks, but it has a highly sought-after attraction: a zipline swing! Named after former elite runner and Hunt Club resident Paul Landry, this park is often the site of community events organized by the local community centre, located just minutes away. You’ll also find a short nature path to enjoy.

Riverwood Park

Off of Kimberwick Cresent, you’ll find a well-maintained park with a playground, soccer field and basketball court. Aptly named Riverwood, this park lives up to its name; if you take the path into the forest, you’ll find it leads down to the Rideau River shoreline.

Uplands Park

Quaint Uplands Park shares its name with the road it is located on. The play structures are designed for smaller children, but two full-sized tennis courts and plenty of green space mean there’s lots to do regardless of your age.

Uplands-Riverside Park

Upland-Riverside Park is very spacious with lots of space to run and play, plus hills for tobogganing in winter. There are play structures, a basketball net and a nice gazebo-style shelter that offers shade in the summertime. Unfortunately, the park, located on Riverside Drive, lacks a parking lot, so sometimes parking is hard to come by.

Public Transportation

It’s very easy to get around Hunt Club and quickly travel to neighbouring towns, downtown Ottawa or the airport; you are never more than 10 minutes from the Queensway. OC Transpo also offers widespread service, but routes can change last minute, so be sure to check online for the latest schedules. The Greenboro transit station is conveniently located at the north end of the South Keys Shopping Centre. This main bus and train terminal offers a large Park & Ride lot close to where Johnston Road meets Bank Street.

Most of Hunt Club is very cycle-friendly with many bike paths that are entirely traffic-free, for example, along Airport Parkway. 

Community and Entertainment in Hunt Club

Hunt Club is a tight-knit neighbourhood due in part to a very strong community association dedicated to improving the quality of life for area residents. Since 1979, the Hunt Club Community Association has been working with the local government, enhancing public services and planning social events.

Many activities are planned in coordination with the Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre. Located in the center of town adjacent to a large park, the community centre offers something for everyone. You’ll find a full gymnasium, multipurpose rooms, weight room and a kitchen inside, plus fields, a basketball court, baseball diamonds, and play structures outside. Each season you can register for a variety of activities organized for just about any age. 

For golfers, there isn’t much better than the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club, also simply called the Ottawa Hunt or the Hunt Club. This prestigious private club offers a 27-hole championship golf course, a top-notch range, and a spectacular curling venue. Many high-profile events are hosted there each year.

Catch a movie at the local Cineplex Odeon South Keys Cinemas or, if you are in search of world-class sporting events or nightlife, downtown Ottawa is just 15-20 minutes away.

Dining Out in
Hunt Club

In Hunt Club, you can find anything from a $2 burger to a $200 steak! And the neighbourhood’s food scene caters to a variety of ethnocultural backgrounds. A few local favourites include:


An combination of Thai, Chinese and Japanese cuisine awaits you at Bambu restaurant. Hunt Club residents love the top-quality sushi served in “boats” and appreciate that several menu items cater to those with gluten sensitivities. 

The Greek Souvlaki House

For tasty marinated potatoes and generous plates (large enough to share) loaded with greek goodness, visit The Greek Souvlaki House on Rivergate Way. Don’t forget to end your meal with the perfectly made Baklava.

The Keg Steakhouse + Bar

Pricier, but well worth it! If you are looking for an excellent meal or a great place to celebrate a special occasion, The Keg Steakhouse will not disappoint. As you can imagine, the menu appeals to meat-eaters, but many positive reviews mention the abundance of veggie entrees, apps and sides that also please vegetarians.

Moose McGuire's

A casual pub with a sports bar vibe that serves draft beer, fish and chips, delicious hamburgers, and mouth-watering baskets of wings. And for an extra dose of fun, be sure to visit Moose McGuire’s on nights they feature live music.

Moxies Hunt Club Restaurant

Residents of Hunt Club and surrounding areas keep returning to this Moxies location. The ambience is inviting, the staff is friendly, and the food is great. The restaurant can easily accommodate large groups indoors or outside on the patio.
