Russell is an established village just South East of Ottawa. The village itself belongs to the Township of Russell and is one of its largest communities, second only to Embrun. Like Embrun, the majority of its residents work in the city of Ottawa. After all, the village’s border is a mere 2 km from Ottawa’s city limits and a 20-25 minute drive to downtown. Russell allows people to experience smaller town living, while still affording them many employment choices found in the large city of Ottawa.
Unlike many of the other communities in the townships, Russell is predominantly English speaking, though many of its residents are bilingual. Although Russell is outside of Ottawa, it has many schools, services and amenities so its residents rarely have to look far for their needs. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, a hockey arena and much more. If your children are in to hockey, there are multiple local teams to be a part of. Russell’s proximity to Ottawa and Embrun’s amenities and to Limoges, where the waterpark Calyspo has made its home, means you’ll have everything you desire.
The Tessier Team is proud to serve the village of Russell and all of its real estate needs. There are so many groups formed by citizens in Russell that make it a great place to live. Nestled along the Castor River, Russell also offers its residents the chance to fish in the summer and it creates a nice flat surface trail for skidoos in the winter time. Russell is also home to many parks, including the Russell Dog Park! Canine owners rejoice, you don’t have to head in to Ottawa for your dog to enjoy the company of many other furry friends. All in all, Russell is a great place to call home.
