The neighbourhood is home to the Jewish Community Campus of Ottawa. The campus features the Soloway Jewish Community Centre, Hillel Lodge (a nursing home), and Hillel Academy School. It is also home to St. Basil's Church and Evergreen Park. There is also a small business park west of Clyde.

The area began to be developed around the 1920s,[3] but truly began being built in 1949 when lots were sold on the "McKellar Homesite" adjacent the now defunct McKellar Golf Club located on the other side of Carling.[4] The neighbourhood was mostly built in the 1950s.[5]
