If you’re interested in living in the Ottawa area, but want a home that is designed specifically for you, consider building a custom home in Greely with Omega Homes. Greely is an up and coming area that should be on any new homebuyers radar. The rural suburbs are a great place to raise a family or simply escape the chaos of the city. Being less than a 30-minute commute to Downtown Ottawa is just one of the many benefits of living in Greely.
A Bit About Greely
Greely, Ontario, is a rural suburb located roughly 25 kilometers south of Ottawa in the Osgoode Ward. It is the largest rural village in terms of size with the third-largest population in the City of Ottawa. The community is rapidly growing and has become a sought after location because of how easy it is to commute to Downtown Ottawa, with commuters loving that they are less than half an hour from work while still being able to enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural town when they arrive home.
The Greely community has become extremely tight-knit and actively works to provide activities for children and adults alike. The Greely Community Association is responsible for meeting the community’s needs and improving the quality of life in the area, through organized recreational activities and social groups. The organization ensures children have access to every organized sport imaginable, and there are even a few adult leagues available. The development, transportation, youth, and civic affairs committees all work together to ensure living in Greely is an amazing experience.
There is a great selection of quality schools and childcare programs available to families living in the Greely-area. Greely First Steps Daycare, Metcalfe Co-operative Nursery School, and Metcalfe Home Daycare are just some of the options available for children not yet old enough for school. The elementary schools in the area are Greely Elementary School, St. Mary’s Catholic School, and Castor Valley Elementary School. There are also several high schools to choose from just outside of Greely.
The best place to spend your time outdoors is the Greely Village Park. This vast green space has a skateboard park, a BMX track, a full-sized soccer field, a basketball court, tennis courts, and fitness trails. There’s a ton of other great parks, trails, and man-made lakes for families to enjoy as well. A few members of the community even came together to build the Greely loop, which is a 10.7-kilometer cycling and walking path that connects roughly 20 neighborhoods in the area. Also, if you enjoy golfing you’re going to love living in Greely. Emerald Lakes Golf and Country Club is located right in town and there are several other courses in the surrounding area, including Falcon Ridge Golf Club and Metcalfe Golf Club.
Shopping and Dining
There is a 24/7 grocery store and a liquor store located right in Greely and many more in the surrounding townships. As the population continues to grow, residents living in Greely can expect to see more shopping centers and grocery stores built for the convenience of the community. Although the downtown core is close enough to go and enjoy a night out, sometimes it’s nice to stay local. The neighboring township of Manotick has a bunch of restaurant options just a short drive away. More local businesses will be popping up in the near future but for now, residents are enjoying Greely’s quiet rural charm.
Festivals, Events, and Celebrations
There is a constant stream of festivals and celebrations in Downtown Ottawa that are easily accessible, but there are a number of events put on locally for those living in Greely. The Greely Legion puts on various weekly events including euchre nights and dancing. The Legion’s most popular event is the annual Country Music Festival. The Greely Lions Club also frequently hosts family-friendly events like music trivia nights, Halloween haunted houses, and charity golf tournaments. The Greely Community Association organizes multiple events as well, including their annual Greely Winter Carnival. The carnival runs for an entire weekend and offers a wide array of activities, from sleigh rides to dinner and comedy shows. The Greely community also puts on an outstanding Canada Day festival every year with fireworks, a beer garden, live music, and more.
