Westmount is one of Waterloo’s favourite old neighourhoods. It started out 100 years ago as a dream and desire for a “garden suburb”. The neighbourhood had the initial help of the landscape architect who had designed New York’s Central Park and Montreal’s Mount Royal neighborhood. But it wasn’t until after 1930 and the construction of the Westmount Golf and Country Club that things really got rolling. By the 1960’s almost all the lots had been built upon and Westmount had established itself as Kitchener Waterloo’s premier neighbourhood.
When my family first moved to Waterloo Region, we spent about half a year getting the lay of the land, checking out different neighborhoods. We were researching to find great schools, and proximity to pools and libraries. These were our two main criteria. We eventually bought a home in Westmount, not old Westmount, but in Westmount/UpTown. 215 Dick Street is just around the corner from where we bought our home. Our kids went to Empire School – always one of the top ranked schools in Waterloo Region, then Centennial School for 7&8 and then to WCI – all great schools!
What I like about this neighborhood is an easy walk into UpTown Waterloo, and all the shops, the library and nightlife. Once we got a dog, Waterloo Park, about a five minute walk away became a daily destination. It’s really a great location!
