Living in the Glebe is a great opportunity for skating, kayaking, cycling and running enthusiasts. One of winter’s biggest tourist attractions is the Rideau Canal, the world’s largest skating rink, which winds its way through the heart of Ottawa, with a total length of 7.8 kms. 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 Glebe consists of detached homes, many of them constructed in the early decades of the 20th century. The Glebe is home to Lansdowne Park which contains TD Place Stadium, where Ottawa’s CFL football team, the Ottawa Redblacks play their home games. The last Saturday in May of each year brings the “Great Glebe Garage Sale” to the neighbourhood, attracting a large contingent of bargain hunters to the area.
