The Region of Waterloo over the past 4 years home values have increased an average of $130,000 with over 24,000 homes sold!
The Region of Waterloo is broken down into smaller cities and areas like Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Wilmot Township, North Dumfries, Woolwich and Wellesley Township, and each of those places have their own little communities within. I’m going to showcase what each small community within our larger communities have to offer, from small, unique businesses to scenic parks and trails, to local landmarks, and of course, to the real estate. Take a look as I’ll be touring a new neighbourhood every week to highlight everything that makes our Region so great – I’ll take you through the city cores, to the suburbs, and out to all of the surrounding rural areas.

Our Region of Waterloo is home to some beautiful scenery that you’d be hard pressed to find in cities elsewhere. For starters, there’s Waterloo Park. Waterloo Park sits on forty-five hectares of prime parkland and is located right in the heart of Waterloo. There’s a petting zoo known as Eby Farmstead, which is great for the kids; it’s got the Grist Mill which is a notorious spot for weddings; there’s a skatepark, splashpad, tons of sports diamonds and fields; and if none of that tickles your fancy, there are quite a few nature trails to explore.
If beautiful scenery’s your thing, then you can’t miss the Grand River. This two-hundred and eighty-kilometer river runs through Waterloo, Kitchener, and Cambridge, all of the Region of Waterloo and continues to head south until it opens into Lake Erie; it’s Southern Ontario’s longest river and is home to several species of fish and wild life. There are a few great restaurants in our region that allow diners to take in the view of the Grand while enjoying some pretty spectacular food, but I’ll make sure to take you through these as we hit those neighbourhoods.

In the Region of Waterloo make your way from Waterloo to Kitchener and you’ll discover another stunning inner-city park, Victoria Park. Nestled right in Kitchener’s downtown core, this park has a ton of amenities from a fully licensed banquet hall to horse shoe pits, basketball courts, and as you can see, it even has a restaurant, the Boathouse, overlooking the huge lake at the centre of the park. Victoria Park is also home to some awesome annual events and the one I personally can’t miss every year is our Rib and Craft Beer fest. Local breweries line up tents all over the park square with samples of their latest concoctions and best sellers, and food trucks line the park with famous ribs from around North America.
Rib fest isn’t our only annual attraction – the Region hosts quite a few food festivals; Buskers comes to Waterloo Square every summer for some family entertainment; and then there’s Oktoberfest… Waterloo Region is host to the world’s largest Oktoberfest outside of Munich. This nine-day festival kicks off every year on the Friday of Canada’s Thanks Giving weekend and is estimated to attract over seven hundred thousand visitors. It is as true to the original Bavarian festival as you can get, due in large part to Kitchener’s German history.
