Welcome to Rothwell Heights


Rothwell Heights offers residents the quiet ambience of a natural environment just steps from the Ottawa River, yet with all the conveniences of city living close at hand.

Known for its stunning forested landscapes and modernist architecture, many of the community's first homes were designed in the 1950s and 1960s by pioneering architects of the day.  Today, Rothwell Heights remains a coveted setting for both vintage and contemporary homes that recognize and respect the value of our natural surroundings, and a desirable place to live for those who appreciate the outdoors.

The Rothwell Heights Property Owners Association (RHPOA) has been continually active since 1960, and is one of the longest continually-active community associations in Ottawa.  Our volunteer Association works on behalf of RH residents with City, Provincial and Federal representatives to address issues of relevance to the continued safeguard of our residents, our environment and our quality of life.

We invite all Rothwell Heights residents to demonstrate their community support by joining the RHPOA.  Annual membership is only $10 per household.


The RHPOA is a member of the The Federation of Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa (FCA).
