In case you are not familiar with Blackburn Hamlet, this subdivision was developed in the late 1960’s by Costain, now known as Coscan Brookfield.  The developer received very high praise for the quality of its work.  Blackburn Hamlet became one of the best neighbourhoods in Ottawa.  Everyone could walk to school, church and all amenities.  Most of the parks are interconnected by walkways.  The access to downtown is fast and easy via the Hwy 174, Innes Rd, or the Parkway.  Fifty some years after its development, the Hamlet remains as popular as in the 60’s.
