The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by the Sir George-Étienne Cartier Parkway, on the east by the Aviation Parkway, on the south by Montreal Road and on the west by Birch Road. This area covers Census Tracts 5050060.00 and 5050059.00 which had a combined population of 7,716 as of the Canada 2016 Census.
It is an almost exclusively residential area, the great majority of its housing stock having been built in the late 1940s and early 1950s, by a consortium of five Ottawa area developers. Prior to its development, much of the land was slightly marshy treed area, used as riding trails stemming from nearby Mile Circle as well as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police stables, which remain nearby, and are the home of the Musical Ride. It is well treed, with some notable white pines scattered throughout.
The first development in what is now Manor Park appeared in the mid 1920s, and was known as Rockcliffe Annex. Following World War II, Manor Park was built over top of Rockcliffe Annex, becoming Ottawa's first post-war subdivision. The first families moved into the neighbourhood in 1947. When it was built, it was considered to be "Canada's first completely co-ordinated community".
