About The Glebe
Ottawa’s Glebe neighbourhood is located just south of the downtown core. It is bound by historic Ottawa attractions such as the Rideau Canal, the Aberdeen Pavilion and Lansdowne Park. The Glebe seamlessly combines the old and the new for a unique community experience.
The neighbourhood is known for classic red brick homes with front porches, parks, pathways, great schools and amazing shops.
It’s a place where neighbours sip coffee and chat while their kids are playing at the park, ride their bike down the laneway or skip stones in the pond. It’s a place where you can park your car and walk – to the grocery store, the community centre, the neighbourhood restaurants and attractions.

Here are a few other things I love about my neighbourhood:
The community is inviting, you will be amazed at how many people live, work and play here.
Bank Street is filled with all walks of people from locals, day trippers, foodies, art collectors to music fans as the neighbourhood is a perfect place for people who want to leave their car behind and explore.
There are many great parks; Brown’s Inlet, Sylvia Holden Park, Glendale Park and Central Park. Between them they offer playgrounds, free tennis courts, soccer fields, a wading pool, splash pads, community hockey rinks and a skateboard park. Of course, you will meet all your neighbours and your children’s friends there. Most of the time, the kids do the introductions!
The Glebe Community Centre is home to the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group. It is in a renovated church, adjacent to the Tennis Club. You can enroll your kids in before and after school programs, summer camps, dance and art classes. There are also many programs geared toward adults. You can also join the amazing GNAG community theatre company!
You live within blocks of some of the city’s best schools – Mutchmor Public School, Corpus Christi Catholic School and Glebe Collegiate Institute, to name a few. We are also walking distance to Carleton University and private school campuses.
You don’t want to miss Kettleman’s Bagel Company, an Ottawa establishment. It’s open 365 days a year and there is nothing like it on a Saturday morning. My favourite is the Breakfast Sandwich on All Dressed Bagel.
Make sure to stop by our Farmer’s Market at Lansdowne Park on Sundays – full of fresh produce, local meats and special treats.
The live music festivals, City Folk and Marvest – create a bountiful harvest of local music, right here in the Glebe.
If you feel like eating Indian, Mexican, Italian or Gastropub food, we have it – the Glebe’s eclectic restaurant scene has put us on the map!
Come down and make a day of it, grab a coffee, stop by the vinyl or book stores and finish your day on one of our amazing patios. You’ll want to make this magical place home for good!
If you’re in the market to buy or sell a home, let Lyne & Dominique show you the city, contact us.
