Somerset Village


Located minutes from Parliament Hill Somerset Village are one of Ottawa's favorite spots to visit for dining and sightseeing.
Somerset Village may have started in the mid '70s. Ottawa people began to take longer second looks at the older downtown neighborhoods. Visits to Yorkville, Vancouver and Boston stirred comparisons, and raised possibilities. Somerset Street, particularly between Bank and O'Conner was one area deemed to "really have some promise". But plans and dreams came and went, yet Somerset never really made the transition. Yes, it was a major downtown intersection, and the collection of turn-of-the-century buildings was captivating, but somehow something more was needed to make this potentially dynamic area come alive.
