About Glebe

A sustainable, liberal neighbourhood with dog-friendly businesses lining Bank St and a short walk from downtown, the Glebe is a highly desirable Ottawa neighbourhood located within the city core and bordered by the stunning Rideau Canal. One of the most spectacular features the Glebe has to offer is Lansdowne Park, home to our CFL RedBlacks, NASL Ottawa Fury and OHL Ottawa 67’s. The event space also hosts a number of concerts and surrounded by some of Ottawa's best restaurants.

The Glebe’s house prices are high but manageable, in comparison with some of the bordering communities in this area. With heritage homes, detached single-family households, condos, and row housing, this area accommodates everyone from university students and young families to singletons and seniors.

This bustling and vibrant community with some of the best shopping in Ottawa, and possibly Ottawa’s highest concentration of coffee shops per capita. Within close proximity of this neighbourhood is the Carling campus of the Ottawa Hospital, keeping residents of the Glebe safe, healthy, and happy.
