Westboro Beach is located in the larger geographic neighbourhood of Westboro in the urban west end of the City of Ottawa. (See map) The Westboro Beach community is unique in that it is located adjacent to the Ottawa River, is the site of a public access point to the River and is bounded to the South by the City’s transitway.
