Britannia-Crystal Beach-Crystal Bay is a small community nestled beside the Ottawa River in the middle of the city. The community has a distinct small village feel. Its riverside location has given the community a reputation for its river access, parklands, and excellent recreational opportunities.  In the early 1900's the Ottawa Electric Railway completed a streetcar line to the new park on Britannia Bay and today the path that the streetcar took is part of a huge network of walking and biking paths.
