Riverside South is a suburban community in Gloucester-South Nepean Ward. It is located in the former city of Gloucester just southwest of Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport. In the early 1990s, this area was mostly vacant with a few houses and some farms. However, over the last few years there is an extensive housing development that seems to be growing in the pace of other major communities such as Barrhaven, Kanata and Orléans. The area is limited to areas around River Road and Earl Armstrong Road, and just west of Limebank Road. It is planned that Riverside South will become a major community with south expansions closer to Manotick and to the east closer to Leitrim.
