Neighborhood Tourist Spot
The Glebe is a neighbourhood in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is located just south of Ottawa's downtown area in the Capital Ward with its northern border being demarcated by the Queensway highway. It is bounded by the Rideau Canal to the south and east. Many maps show the western edge as Bronson Avenue, but some also include the triangle farther west formed by Bronson, Carling Avenue, and Dow's Lake. The Glebe Community Association uses the latter definition. As of 2011, the area's population was 11,184.The Glebe has a strong community association which, in addition to running a large community centre, lobbies the local government on issues such as traffic calming and neighbourhood development. The Glebe has a community newspaper, Glebe Report, that has been published independently since 1973.The Glebe is mostly populated by families; the area has many children, and consequently its social services are oriented towards youth. The Glebe lies in the federal riding of Ottawa Centre, and the same provincial electoral district.

  • I went through the week so maybe this place is more interesting on the weekend? There is a fabulous vegan restaurant and a neat paper store but other than that nothing special.  more »
  • Watch for the June date & visit for a fun day. It's enjoyable to walk around the tree lined streets especially when summer flowers are in full bloom.  more »
  • Fun area to walk about and enjoy the speciality stores as well as many amazing restaurants. Light of India, Felenas, Vietnamese Kitchen, Quinn's,...I could go on and on - just take a walk....  more »
