Moving to Gloucester
Are you planning a move to Gloucester? Cassidy’s is a Gloucester moving company, so we know this Eastern Ottawa community very well … and we can tell you, it is thriving, with a population currently numbering approximately 125,000. It’s tempting to call Gloucester a neighbourhood, but it’s actually a collection of communities, each with a charming name like Blossom Park, Chateau Neuf, or Honey Gables.
You’ll find plenty of amenities right near your new home, especially in the commercial area along Montreal Road. The Richcraft Sensplex is a local attraction where youth and adults can practice their hockey skills — or just relax and watch a game. And the development of the light rail transit line through the heart of Gloucester promises a bright future for the area.

Why We Love Gloucester
Gloucester is an excellent place to raise a family. Not only is it in a prime location, but it offers plenty of attractions for families who enjoy sports, dining out, entertainment or shopping.
Gloucester was one of 11 municipalities amalgamated into the City of Ottawa in 2001, and since then it has experienced plenty of development. Although there may be plenty of plans to develop and expand Gloucester, we know it for its traditional, family-friendly atmosphere.
With its numerous public parks and tight-knit communities, it allows families to live a quiet lifestyle while still being very close to the downtown.
GLOUCESTER: SPORTS, RESTAURANTS AND DESTINATIONS
Whether your family is interested in entertainment, museums, sports, or dining out, there is plenty to do in Gloucester.
And while its primary attraction is location, it’s a great place to spend a day in its own right.
There are plenty of places in Gloucester that make for excellent day outings. One of the most popular is the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum. Take a tour of the museum’s collection of preserved historical airplanes, such as the Avro 683 Lancaster X or the Bleroit XI, one of the first aircraft used in combat. Additionally, the museum offers helicopter tours of Ottawa and features regular special events.
If you’re more interested in movies, Scotiabank Theatre (formerly SilverCity Gloucester) is the destination for you. It is one of Ottawa’s biggest theatres, featuring 16 screens. It also contains a full arcade with some of the newest games around.
Or, if you’d rather be shopping, there’s plenty of that on offer at the Gloucester Shopping Centre. With endless options, including Pet Valu, Freedom Mobile, and even Walmart, the shopping centre is sure to have what you’re looking for. There’s also a food court if you get hungry.
Speaking of food, Gloucester is home to some of the nicest restaurants in Ottawa. One notable example is Big Rig Brewery. They are a local craft brewer with a varied menu of drinks, including porters, stouts and ales. And, while Big Rig is known for their beer, they do a great job with their food as well, offering more than just traditional pub fare.
Another great option is Moxie’s. Their menu of steak, seafood, pasta and salad is sure to satiate the appetite of even the most discerning diner. They also happen to be located fairly close to Scotiabank Theatre, so it’s the perfect spot for dinner and a movie.
Finally, for authentic Indian food, it’s hard to do better than Coconut Lagoon. With a lunch buffet and accommodations for groups, it’s perfect for a work outing as well as a family dinner.
Gloucester is fantastic for the family that appreciates sports, especially hockey. The Richcraft Sensplex gives people in Gloucester access to a full-featured hockey facility with four arenas, a blade sharpening service, and a licensed bar and grill, Stanley’s.
Gloucester is host to the Gloucester Hockey Association, which gives young players the opportunity to compete in minor hockey leagues across Ottawa. They also allow players to rent ice time across the city.
The area is also known for its golf, with two full-size golf courses located within its boundaries. Pine View golf course is a mature-style course that caters to golfers who are looking for a challenge. Their course features 36 holes, and their clubhouse is host to several HD golf simulators, which allow you to play golf throughout the winter. Another great option is the White Sands golf course, which features a nine-hole course and the city’s largest driving range.
Finally, if you’re interested in playing “summer” outdoor sports in the winter, the Superdome offers warm-weather sports throughout the year. You can play soccer, frisbee, rugby, lacrosse, and football on a regulation-size soccer field fully protected by an inflatable dome.
