Parks & Trails
An abundance of parks, nature trails and forests surround the Uptown Waterloo neighbourhoods. Walk the woods in the Columbia Forest of North Waterloo or take an afternoon wandering the path along Silver Lake to the Waterloo Park pavilion. Find the trail marking one million years of geological history and discover the historic Iron Horse trail winding you along a former railway corridor.
Take the trails going north by walking, cycling or rollerblading up to the University of Waterloo all the way to Columbia Lake and the bankside streams of the Laurel creek. Wind your days down on pickleball and tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields, and play on the cricket and rugby pitches lit up at night to keep you fit, active and living a healthy lifestyle.
