Beacon Hill is a neighbourhood located in Beacon Hill-Cyrville Ward in the east end of Ottawa. Beacon Hill was a part of the City of Gloucester until it was amalgamated with the new city of Ottawa in 2001.
Beacon Hill is a primarily residential area, built in the 1960s and '70s. It consists of two parts, Beacon Hill North and Beacon Hill South, divided by Montreal Road.
It is bounded on the east by the Greenbelt, including the Green's Creek ravine, to the south by Highway 174, and on the west by the older neighbourhoods of Cardinal Heights (south of Montreal Road) and Rothwell Heights (north of Montreal Road).
It is most likely that the community drew its name from a lighthouse on the Ottawa River located downstream from Duck Island. It is thought that the light from the river could be seen from Naskapi Dr (the top of the hill), hence Beacon Hill. Though the lighthouse is no longer in use, its foundation is still visible from the bike path.
