The Glebe neighbourhood is located just south of Ottawa's downtown area in the capital ward. Its northern border is demarcated by the Queensway highway. It is bounded by the Rideau Canal to the south and east as well as Bronson at the western edge. From the canal two bodies of water join into the Glebe: Patterson Creek & Brown's Inlet. These areas are surrounded by parks and some of the city's most expensive homes.

The Glebe has a strong community association which in addition to running a large community centre, lobbies the local government on issues such as traffic calming and neighbourhood development.

The Glebe is mostly populated by families; the area has many children and consequently its social services are oriented towards youth. The Glebe lies in the Federal riding of Ottawa Centre and the same provincial electoral district.

Bank Street runs through the Glebe and is one of Ottawa's premier shopping areas, with many boutique stores and restaurants offering a wide variety of services. Glebe is home to Lansdowne Park which contains TD Place Stadium, where Ottawa's Canadian Football League (CFL) football team The Ottawa Redblacks and the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees play their home games. Lansdowne Park also contains the Ottawa Civic Centre which is the permanent home of the Ottawa 67's and was the temporary home (1992-1995) for the Ottawa Senators before the Canadian Tire Centre was completed.

At the last Saturday in May of each year brings the Great Glebe Garage Sale to the neighborhood; attracting a large contingent of bargain hunters to the area. Sellers donate a portion of the proceeds to a designated charity.

The Glebe consists of detached homes semis, multi-family and apartments, many of them contructed in the early part of the 20th century.

The neighbourhood began to change in the 1970's when it underwent significant gentrification and became one of Ottawa's elite neighbourhoods.
