Beechwood with community pools and linear parks

Started in the mid 60s and completed in the early-1980s, Beechwood has long been a favourite neighbourhood because of liveliness and its privacy. A central feature of this neighbourhood is its six neighbourhood associations, which are at the centres of community activity around the swimming pools and tennis courts. Beechwood is a beautiful neighbourhood, considered to be one of Ontario’s most classically sophisticated.

The neighbourhood is well situated, west of the University of Waterloo and bordered by Columbia, Fischer-Hellman, Westmount and Erb. It is convenient to shopping in both UpTown Waterloo and the Boardwalk (and Costco).

The homes are large and traditional and placed on large tree filled lots. The streets are winding and treelined and the neighbourhood has walking trails and linear parks throughout. There are lots of reasons Beechwood is so popular (and prominent). Not only are the schools better than average, the trails are gorgeous, the lots are large, the homes are classy, and there are several community spaces like parks and soccer fields. Beechwood has terrific accessibility to other areas of Waterloo, yet it is sufficient far away that it really is tranquil, safe and enjoyably suburban. In many ways it is ideal. If I had a young family and wanted to settle down in Waterloo Region, I would certainly strongly consider Beechwood. It has always been a wise investment and homebuyers are always trying to find homes here, because it is such an attractive, mature neighbourhood.

Married couples with university degrees, white-collar executives, those who enjoy globetrotting vacations, and gourmet cooking live in this neighbourhood. They tend to have large families and active lifestyles which include theatre, sporting events, film festivals, and golf memberships. Beechwood is a perfect fit for families looking to move from their starter homes and put down roots in a more established and distinguished neighbourhood.
