Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Situated at the crossroads of three bike trails - Estriade, Campagnarde and Montagnarde - Waterloo offers a surprising number of things to see and do.
The city recently received the Vélosympathique certification, instituted by the organization Vélo Québec, which notably highlights the quality of services and infrastructures intended for cycling enthusiasts. The region is a popular destination for cycling enthusiasts with possibilities suitable for all levels.
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 Lake Waterloo.
Located close to the village of Waterloo, Manoir Maplewood combines the comfort and refinement of a hotel. Built in 1865, this magnificent manor was the former home of Senator A.B. Foster, an important businessman.
Start your visit by the Waterloo Tourism Office, where you'll be warmly welcome and given all the informations you need to make the most of the area.
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!
This Cœur villageois offers multiple attractions – bike trails, green spaces, art and culture, as well as a public square where, during the summer, visitors can enjoy a picnic amid the sounds of live music. And don’t miss the local products and artisans.
Savour the flavours… Stop first of all at the tourist information office where you’ll find a selection of local products, then detour to Beignes D’autrefois Phil’s (a craft bakery) to sample a great donut or to Gâteaux Duvoquic for a cupcake – simply irresistible!
