UpTown Waterloo


UpTown Waterloo living the dream

Living in UpTown Waterloo is a dream for many people. Not only does the neighbourhood have excellent schools (including walking distance to two Universities), it has ready access to the new LRT as well as shopping and restaurants. This quiet and mature neighbourhood is also right next to Waterloo Park with more than 100 acres of trails, soccer pitches, baseball diamonds, green space, Silver Lake, a splash pad and playgrounds.

The two and three strorey homes in Uptown tend to be approaching 100 years old but most have been periodically updated and lovingly cared for over the years. In the UpTown neighbourhood, you will find homes with large front porches, brick facades and shady backyards.

There is a mix of classic and modern architecture in Uptown. Waterloo Square is the focal point for most activities that happen during the year including Winterloo, Buskers Festival and the Uptown Jazz Festival.
