Rural Kanata & Carp

The village of Carp is the most westward community in the City of Ottawa – named after the Carp River which runs through the village. The village is home to about 9000 people and located 33 kilometers to Ottawa off the 417. Carp offers many attractive amenities for its residents including the Carp Farmer’s Market, held every Saturday from May to October, the Annual Carp Fair, held every September, and the Diefenbunker Museum, now referred to as Canada’s Cold War Museum. Huntley Centennial Public School is located in the heart of Carp which is the public elementary school. Carp is surrounded by hundreds of kilometers of biking, hiking, walking and snowmobiling trails across the Ottawa Valley. This tight knit community is a short drive to the amenities of Stittsville and Kanata. Mature neighborhoods with large lots are surrounded by newer development of two storey, bungalows and row units surrounded by beautiful farm land. Carp draws residents who want a slower pace of life close to the city.
