The Glebe is a neighbourhood in Ottawa, located just south of the downtown area in the Capital Ward with its northern border being demarcated by Highway 417, the Queensway. It is bounded by the Rideau Canal to the south and east. From the canal two bodies of water jut into the Glebe: Patterson Creek and Brown’s Inlet.
The stretch of Bank Street that runs through the Glebe is one of Ottawa’s premier shopping areas, with many small stores and restaurants offering a wide variety of services. Much of the rest of the Glebe consists of detached homes, many of them constructed in the early decades of the 20th century. Some of these homes are owner-occupied family residences, while others have been subdivided into multiple rental apartments.
The Glebe is mostly populated by families; the area has many children, and consequently its social services are oriented towards youth.
The Glebe is home to Lansdowne Park which contains TD Place Stadium, where Ottawa’s CFL football team the Ottawa Redblacks and the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees play their home games. Lansdowne Park also contains TD Place Arena, which is the permanent home of the Ottawa 67’s.
