Waterloo Park

Reviewed By Duncan P - Burlington, Canada

As someone else noted, this is a needed lung space. It has a small lake, walking paths, zoo (bit of a stretch), and sports fields. The LRT passes directly by it.

West Montrose Covered Bridge (Kissing Bridge)

Reviewed By Carol B - Ontario, Canada

If you are in the area, definitely make the trip to see the bridge. If you go at Sunday lunchtime around 12:00, you may get some great pictures as the Mennonites travel the bridge in their horse & buggies to get home from church. This is also the bridge where scenes from IT were filmed. There is a parking area near the Kissing Bridge trail where you can read info about the bridge. Respect the signs and do not cross onto the grass along the riverbanks which are private property.

Market Road Antiques

Reviewed By Myra_11 - Waterloo, Canada

Was looking for a three tiered dessert dish for a High Tea event and although they are very hard to come by, a lady at the front desk pointed me in the right direction and I ended up purchasing a two tiered dish which would work for my event. I ended up getting 20% off the original asking price since it was a sale special for that particular booth. I found items in most cases well marked and priced, There is even a Japanese section with beautiful bronze vases and antiques. Enjoyed browsing. Place was clean and well organized and paying was a breeze since they have credit card access.

Laurel Creek Conservation Area

Reviewed By Robby G C - Toronto, Canada

My three highlights in this Conservation Area, were the lake and its beach. People could kayak and some were enjoying the sun on the beach.
The second one was the dam. We couldn’t see in completely, but still it was beautiful!
The third one was a trail where there were a lot of flowers and eventually we walked on a wooden bridge to admire the flora.
We enjoyed eating our picnic there at a picnic table. We had a view on the lake. There were a lot of youth groups in this place!
We stayed here for over two hours. We trekked, we enjoyed and we will never forget the view we saw!
It’s worthwhile to see!

This mall has received a lot of upgrades and expansions in the last 15 years. I was impressed with it.
The food court is nice and clean and bright. The selection of stores are excellent and the washrooms are clean and environmentally friendly.
There is something for everyone at this mall ... even a museum (entrance in the food court area).

Innocente Brewing Company

Reviewed By taupecat - Kitchener ON

Stopped with friends from out of town for our second visit. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Free wee samples to help in choices. Good recommendations on putting a flight together. Russian Imperial Stout was amazing- very high at 11.9% but super smooth and lovely in a small serving instead of an espresso after dinner. Love the name: Until Proven Guilty. In fact it's a good part of the fun; all the clever names. Filled our growlers and we will be back. Will go on a tour another time as it's the owner who does them and he has a PhD for goodness sake.

Iron Horse Trail

Reviewed By Robby G C - Toronto, Canada

We found the Iron Horse Trail. It used to be a railroad for trains. We found a part of that railroad while we were walking. It’s quite old and it gives some nostalgia for what good it did in the past.
The trail was really nice. It was paved. Many ran on it, we walked and enjoyed viewing the scenery. We were not the only one!
Worthwhile to see and experience!

The Clay & Glass

Reviewed By Scott C - Waterloo, Canada

We visited this place recently and enjoyed the various displays. The focus seems to be more on retail, but the prices seemed reasonable and the gallery is an eclectic collection. We were also here for a private function and really enjoyed the ambience of their main room. We will return.

Waterloo Central Railway

Reviewed By Lisa B - Oakville, Canada

Attended with our whole family, kids, adults etc. Purchased the trip event on Groupon. We chose the pumpkin patch ride, thought it would be a nice day for the entire family...The train was a half hour late, the ride was extremely bumpy- you can not walk or walk to the bathroom while on the train or you will fall over. Dangerous for young kids or elderly to be walking with the train moving. They state you stop at a pumpkin patch, which it NOT true! The train stops at this one stop and dozens of pumpkins are scattered on the grass and you can choose one and bring it back with you. I understand that the entire excursion is ran by volunteers, however, this is certainly not worth the money! There isn't much "site seeing or views" as they advertise for. Other than the Groupon offers they have for this railway, I do not see the point of having it. No music playing, no conductor explaining the history of the old train, nothing! Very disappointing!

Benjamin Tree Farm

Reviewed By daniel f - Red Bay, Canada

We have been going here for over 25 years,we always enjoyed being outdoors,walking thru hundreds of trees and just getting some fresh air and great scenery,we turned coming here into our Christmas Tree hunt /excursion with our children,we would look thru their whole property for just the right tree ,then cut it down ourselves,laugh as we hid on one another in the trees,then after all that go inside to not only enjoy free hot drinks,but popcorn and cookies,then look over all the fine local crafts displayed for sale,the tree prices have not gone up much over the years ,they have moved their location across the street ,but it is the same feel,a great experience to walk ,look over,then cut your own tree,at night or during the day,as I have stated ,we have been coming back here year after year for well over 25 years,and if the trees keep growing will continue to do so..a must see,cheers
