Get to know our neighbourhoods
Brockville was established on the north bank of the St. Lawrence River, and now encompasses approximately 2.5 square miles. The year-to-date average price of a home in Rideau-St. Lawrence is $537,792*
This section of the city runs from the river north to the railway tracks and west of Perth Street to the city limits. The architecture is a mix of heritage styles found closer to the waterfront to recently built modern styles. There are many choices from executive high-end priced homes (many with river views), to moderate older brick homes.
This area encompasses the downtown core from the river to the CN line between Perth Street and Park Street. The homes are a mixture of heritage styles made of stone or brick to modest income dwellings. Numerous apartments above the stores, townhouse as well as duplexes and condos along the river make this a truly versatile socio-economic area. All have easy access to the City’s waterfront parks and walking trails.
The east end is comprised of the area from the river to the railway line and from Park Street to the city limits at Oxford Avenue. Homes tend to be higher quality in some sections, many heritage dwellings found especially closer to the downtown. A stately row of mansions along King Street remind us of the elite culture that has been present in Brockville for centuries.
This next section describes the homes that are found in the area divided between the CN railway line and Highway 401. Homes here are generally up to 60 years old and generally tend to be fairly well maintained with generous size lots.
Brockville residents, when talking about the north end, refer to the development of the city north of Highway 401 up to the city’s northerly limits. This section of the city began its growth with the boom of development in the 1970s including commercial development along Parkedale Avenue and as the community continued to grow the blocks expanded eastwardly. The styles include bungalows to split-levels, 2-storey modern to executive styles including attached garages. Many apartment clusters are also found in the north as well as senior residences.
