Braemar Park[1] is a neighbourhood in College Ward in the west end of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.[2] It is bounded on the north by the Queensway, east on Maitland Drive, south by the Central Experimental Pathway and west by J. H. Putman Public School.

The homes were built between the 1950s and 1960s. Most of the houses are middle- high class families. On Riddell Street South, there are some townhouses. Originally, Riddell Street started on Carling Avenue in Glabar Park. When highway 417 was built in 1967, the road split up and was called north and south. The road ended on Garfield Drive.

The west side of the neighbourhood contains Garfield Park and J. H. Putman Public School. The community is just off the bike path owned by the NCC.

The population of the neighbourhood is roughly 450.
