Heritage Ottawa walking tour - Brown's Inlet and the Driveway of South West Glebe
September 24, 2017 –
This new tour explores the south-west quadrant of the Glebe and will highlight the evolution of this area west of Bank Street, from the time of the building of the Rideau Canal through the area known as the ‘notch’, to the creation by the Ottawa Improvement Commission of the magnificent “Driveway” in the early 1900’s.
This Driveway, now known as Queen Elizabeth Drive, was one of the earliest efforts at creating parkways to fulfil Laurier’s vision to beautify the Capital, and included the development of grand homes and parks along the canal and around Browns Inlet.
GUIDE: Lynn Armstrong is a Landscape Architectural Historian with a special interest in the heritage landscapes of Ottawa, particularly the Driveways and Parks of Ottawa created by the Ottawa Improvement Commission (now the NCC) in the early 1900’s.
