Barrhaven’s Hidden Gem – Minto’s Riversbend at Harmony
Minto’s Riversbend at Harmony brings nature and new homeowners together in Barrhaven
When you’re looking for a new home or even your first home, location plays a big part in the decision making process. Will you be close to transit and highways, good shopping options, schools, and fun things to do during the evening and on weekends? Barrhaven has made its mark as one of Ottawa’s most family-friendly and accessible communities, and with so much to offer, the region has been well explored. However, unknown to many are the real gems that are hidden throughout Barrhaven — some that haven’t been discovered until now.
Riversbend at Harmony is Barrhaven’s connection to nature and Minto Communities Ottawa’s newest community. South of St. Joseph’s High School and north of protected parkland and the Jock River, new Barrhaven residents will be able to call this hidden green space between Greenbank Road and Longfields Drive home. Riversbend at Harmony brings homeowners close to some truly spectacular nature just waiting to be explored.
Riversbend homeowners have direct access to the area’s best trails and riverside paths, perfect for walking, jogging, cycling, and walking the dog. Directly south from Riversbend and across the river, Half Moon Bay District Park is a quick walk away for a nice stroll.
The tree-lined loop around the pond connects to Longfields Drive, just east of the community. Here you can pick up 5 kilometers of nature trails that make up a greater network of paths with scenic views along the Jock River called Stonebridge Trail. Levesque Park has multiple sports fields edged by a pathway that leads into the wooded entrance of the trail.
Northwest of Riversbend at Harmony is yet another green space at Longfields Drive and Paul Métivier Drive with a large pond system, which includes lookouts and benches for the perfect afternoon adventure.
If you’re in the market for a unique sliver of Barrhaven, Riversbend at Harmony is a brand new enclave of Townhomes in the neighborhood. Besides expanding the existing Harmony community along Strandherd Drive — with new lots and a community park — Minto’s new collection of Executive Townhomes at Riversbend will make up a unique cluster of homes, with a tree-lined road connecting Greenbank Road to Longfields Drive.
