The community of the Glebe-Dows Lake is one of the most recognizable, affluent, and eclectic neighbourhoods in Ottawa. It was established in 1837 when most of the land still belonged to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. In 1870 the neighbourhood was developed and the new neighbourhood was simply called The glebe which means church lands. The community is bordered by the Queensway, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Preston Street and Bronson Avenue. Almost all of the residents of the neighbourhood are English speaking but like most neighbourhoods in Ottawa there is a small population of primarily French speaking residents.
The community has many opportunities for its residents to be social and enjoy themselves. Each year they hold the famous Great Glebe Garage Sale which attracts thousands of people searching for new to them treasures and household items. The community is also home to many unique boutiques, restaurants, and coffee shops. For the sports enthusiast there are baseball diamonds, sports fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, outdoor rinks, and a sledding hill. For the younger generations there are play structures, an outdoor wading pool, and a splash pad. The community is lucky to also have two community gardens for the green thumb or environmentally conscious residents.
