Hintonburg has a population of approximately 7,844 residents and can be found west of Ottawa's downtown core. The Queensway or Highway 417 (originally the CN Railway main line) marks the southern border, and the OC Transpo's bus Transitway (formerly CP Railway main line), is the northern border, along Scott Street. Mechanicsville can be found just beyond. The City of Ottawa's O-Train Trillium Line is the eastern border with Holland Avenue to the west.
The town was named after community leader Joseph Hinton and used to be on the main road from downtown Ottawa to the west. To this day, Wellington Street, which starts at Parliament Hill, runs through the center of Hintonburg. The area north of Wellington Street is mixed housing; many of which are small having been built by lumber workers up to 1990. South of Wellington Street is largely residential dating to 1910 to 1920, with little commercial activity and loads of character. Wellington West (literally at the west end of Wellington) have thrived in recent years owing to their proximity to Tunney's Pasture government complex (only a 10-minute walk away) built in the '50s and '60s, and the fabulous warmer weather Parkdale Market with at least 20 vendors and most recently allowing craft brew houses and distilleries the chance to take part and sell their products. Bars and restaurants have grown in particular from Parkdale to Holland and the overall vibe laid back, but hip and evolving.

The area continues to change and residents have been given a voice to influence that change with the formation of the Hintonburg Community Association in the 1980s. The Hintonburg Community Centre was built, several in-fill developments have occurred, and some of the older industrial buildings and cottages have become space for local artists.
Hintonburg is home to the QUAD (Quartier des artistes / Arts District), established in 2003 to provide a neighbourhood that celebrates all arts disciplines. In 2005, the Hintonburg Community Association launched the ArtsPark annual event in the Parkdale Market to feature Ottawa artists and musicians. Hintonburg is also home to the Orpheus Musical Theatre Society that produces musical productions which are mounted at the Centrepointe Theatre in Nepean. In 2007, the Great Canadian Theatre Company reloated to Hintonburg at Holland and Wellington, producing original Canadian plays.
A beloved landmark in Hintonburg is The Parkdale Fire Station, designated as a heritage building in 1986 and is one of only four pre-1945 fire stations left in Ottawa. In 2005 it was renovated for commercial space. Its renovation was one of the first and last projects as part of the federal government's heritage building restoration funds. As a prime example of adaptive reuse, its new role is that of flexible office, meeting and event space, suitable for business or retail alike. It even includes a commercial-sized kitchen.
Schools in the area include Connaught Public School, Devonshire Community Elementary School, Fisher Park Public School and École élémentaire Saint-François-d'Assise.
