Waterloo Park

Waterloo- A Tranquil Holiday Destination


Waterloo is a small city located in Southern Ontario. Waterloo along with Kitchener is popularly known as the Twin Cities. The place enjoys a moderate weather and is ideal for weeklong stays throughout the year. There are many tourist attractions in the city, including museums, malls, and recreation centers. I had a busy weekend in Waterloo and the few places worth remembering is as follows:

  • Waterloo Park

Located at Westmount Road, the Waterloo Park is an ideal location for a perfect family picnic. The park is situated at the banks of the Silver Lake. There is a lakefront boardwalk that offers a great view of the lake and the surrounding foliage.  Much like here at Waterloo Park, there are many outdoor recreational places for the kids to play and have fun.  Waterloo Park IS the place has lots of recreational facilities for kids, including a splash pad, swings, and climbers. There is also a mini zoo that houses animals like peacocks and llamas.

  • Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery

The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery is a place of cultural importance and mainly exhibits artworks made of glass, ceramic, and enamel. Here you can see a huge collection of stained glass art. The beautiful art gallery is one of a kind and every year thousands of tourists visit the place. The place presently houses over 900 exhibits that include a modern and antique collection of pottery wares and glass paintings.

  • Laurel Creek Conservation Area

If you are looking for a tranquil getaway to spend some quality time all by yourself, then Laurel Creek Conservation Area is the right place to be. It is located just off the Westmount Road.  It has a beautiful beach and a lakefront boardwalk. It has a park with beautiful autumn trees and benches to relax. We enjoyed camping at the site for the entire evening. The place also offers beach boat rentals. Tourists also engage in kayaking and canoeing in the lake. There are many birds in this area and visitors often engage in bird watching.
