Copeland Park[2] is a neighbourhood located in College Ward in the west end of Ottawa, Canada. It is bounded to the west by Agincourt Road, to the south by Baseline Road, to the east by Clyde Avenue and to the north by the Central Experimental Farm Pathway.

The community was built in the 1950s and 1960s. In the 1970s, a 21-storey high-rise called the Castle Hill was built at the corner of Castle Hill Crescent and Clyde Avenue. The high-rise is owned by Minto. During that same decade more townhouses and three high-rises were built on Baseline Road at Clyde Avenue. The neighbourhood is mostly surrounded by woods.

The neighbourhood is home to Copeland Park on Navaho Drive, Agincourt Park and Greenlawn Park. There are two schools: Agincourt Public School and Tancook Bell School (also home to a daycare, the building was St. Daniel's Catholic School until 2001) Laurentian High School was located on the corner of Baseline and Clyde until it closed in 2005 to make way for a Wal-Mart shopping complex and an office building. The community is also home to Trinity United Church, located on Maitland Avenue.

The population of the neighbourhood is roughly 4150.
