Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is a sub-neighbourhood of Centretown in Somerset Ward in central Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is a triangle in shape, between Elgin Street on the west and the Rideau Canal on the east.[1] The area is bordered by Ottawa City Hall to the north and to the south by the Elgin street Police station. It is dominated by large single family homes (many have been subdivided), with a number of condominiums and small apartment buildings. Its main western thoroughfare Elgin Street (nicknamed “Sens Mile”), is home to boutiques and galleries, while surrounded by eating establishments, cafes, bars and nightclubs. Its eastern thoroughfare Queen Elizabeth Driveway runs along the western edge of the Rideau Canal. Along the entire length of Queen Elizabeth Driveway is a multi-use trail that is part of the Capital Pathway system.
