Lifestyle and Amenities: Restaurants, Shopping and Entertainment in Orleans

Valecraft Homes’ Cardinal Trails community is positioned in a convenient and popular location in Ottawa for young families and those looking to downsize – there’s something for everyone! For young adults and new families, Cardinal Trails offers beautiful, spacious townhomes at attractive price points. Alternatively, for past homeowners looking to downsize, Cardinal Trails offers the high-quality homes you are seeking with less maintenance than a detached home.
