City View (also known as St. Claire Gardens) is a neighbourhood in College Ward in the west end of the city of Ottawa, Canada. It is located within the former city of Nepean.

Most of the homes were built in the 1930s-1940's. By the 2000s some of the home were demolished and built into new ones; and they still are today.

The area existed as a police village from 1954 to 1974. Despite being in a suburban part of the city, due to its older history, the neighbourhood is set up with a grid pattern of streets. The village limits followed Baseline Road on the north to Clyde Avenue, then around Kerry, Gilbey and Capilano Streets, Merivale Road on the east to Palsen St to Perry St to Meadowlands Drive on the south to Withrow St and Canter Blvd on the west to Rutherford St and Algonquin College.[1] According to the Canada 2011 Census, the population of this area was approximately 3,321.[2] The neighbourhood is right next to Algonquin College, and contains Elizabeth Wynwood High School. It contains a number of small parks; St. Nicholas Park, Starwood Park, City View Park and Doug Frobel Park. The neighbourhood also contains the Nepean Museum. The City View Curling Club is on the other side of Merivale on Capilano Drive.
