Urban Retail Walks: Bank St. North

Recently, Bruce Burwell has been recommending Urban Retail Walks (URW) to deal with your pandemic-panic cabin fever. A few weeks ago, he recommended a Glebe and Bank St. south walk. This week, we’re going to head north on Bank from the Glebe, cross over Sparks to Elgin and then come back south.

Urban Retail Walks: Westboro and Wellington West

In this series, I’ve been writing about doing Urban Retail Walks through the winter of our pandemic discontent. This week I was going to tell you about a walk along the north part of Bank Street and across Sparks. But there seems to be something going on downtown, so we’ll leave that for another day. A walk down Richmond/Wellington in Westboro it is!

Urban Retail Walks: Bank Street

In this series of Urban Retail Walks articles, Bruce Burwell has been highlighting great winter walks where the sidewalks will be clear and the scenery will be engaging. This week, he’ll tramp the sidewalks of the Glebe and Old Ottawa South down Bank Street from the Queensway to the Rideau River.
