In The Glebe

Browse vinyl records and other pop culture items at Crosstown Traffic, the latest kitchenware at J.D. Adam Kitchen Co., ladies’ fashion at Delilah and footwear at Glebe Trotters.Culinary options are equally diverse, including local staple Kettleman’s Bagels, Mexican specialties at Feleenas, gastro pub fare at The Rowan and hundreds of beers on tap at Lansdowne’s Craft Beer Market. Walk off the calories by wandering through the surrounding leafy residential streets lined with brick homes dating from the 1800s.

Glebe Neighbourhood Tour

By Ottawa Tourism

The Glebe neighborhood is named after the lands (“glebe”) that belonged to St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (circa 1837). As Ottawa’s population grew, the church sold some of its property and the area became one of Ottawa’s first suburbs. In 1898, the Aberdeen Pavilion was built to serve as a central hall for the Central Canada Exhibition. The crystal palace-style structure was originally used for agricultural shows and cattle auctions, hence its nickname of “Cattle Castle”. The Pavilion – the only large-scale exhibition building in Canada surviving from the 19th century – is now a centerpiece of the mixed-use Lansdowne development.
