Sample a myriad of local flavours prepared specially for you.
Situated at the crossroads of three bike trails - Estriade, Campagnarde and Montagnarde - Waterloo offers a surprising number of things to see and do.
The prime drawing card in Waterloo is the Artria Park which draws its inspiration from the design of French gardens. Situated right in the heart of downtown, its many attractions include the large sculptures dotted around the site (they form an outdoor art gallery), musical concerts and the stunning views of Lac Waterloo. Soak up those special moments by strolling along the Dragonfly Trail that runs along the waterfront, then stop at the jetty to absorb the beauty of the landscape.
Discover Waterloo’s heritage
Begin your visit by cycling or walking along the heritage trail. Along the way, you’ll discover more than 40 buildings whose architectural styles hark back to the English-speaking settlers who left their mark on Waterloo’s past. The village has a fascinating history and in 2017 it is celebrating its 150th anniversary!
