The Glebe Community Overview

The Glebe-Dows Lake neighbourhood is bounded by the Queensway to the north, Queen Elizabeth Drive to the south and east, Preston Street to the southwest, and Bronson Avenue to the northwest. This neighbourhood is one of Ottawa’s most recognizable and eclectic areas. The Glebe was initially established in 1837, when much of the land was allocated to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. In fact, when the area was opened for development in 1870, the neighbourhood was simply referred to as “the glebe” which means “church lands”, since the land belonged to the church.

The Glebe-Dows Lake neighbourhood has a number of strengths, including many opportunities for community engagement: Glebe Community Association, Glebe Annex Community Association, Dows Lake Residents Association, Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG), and Glebe BIA. There is an extremely well educated population who are well engaged in the political process, good access to recreational opportunities, a high proportion of residents who feel a strong sense of belonging to their community, and high employment. Income levels are generally high. This neighbourhood is committed to active transportation; many residents either walk or cycle to their workplace. Residents have excellent access to healthy food outlets and a very good selection of restaurants; specialty stores and restaurants are within easy walking distance for most residents. Residents are fortunate enough to have the Rideau Canal bordering the neighbourhood, adding to the available parkland and green space. The neighbourhood also has a vibrant cultural life.
