Very clean park with lots for the kids to see and do. Playgrounds and picnic areas as well as a water park. Great for biking, walking, jogging or just sitting and listening to nature.

I love the Laurel / Trans Canada Trail through Waterloo Park. To the north it connects University of Waterloo & Research/Technology Park and to the South Uptown Waterloo, Spurline Trail and the City of Kitchener.

Had a nice evening stroll. Even though they had finished with their Christmas lights it was a wonderful, safe and interesting area. I could see that it would be wonderful to spend some relaxing time there any time of the year.

We love to walk around and through the park with my dog. He likes the llamas and the donkeys. We watch the ducks and geese down at the "lake" and generally just get some fresh air. It's a nice little city park for a nice little city.

Waterloo Park is great for spending family time, playing with your little ones, and have some BBQ! IT's a really good place to enjoy in summer and spring. Bathrooms are OK, yet parking lots need paving. Take your children to see the nice and friendly animals there!

We have lived near this park for years and to be honest I would rather go visit Victoria Park in Kitchener. This park lacks a centre, it has no heart. It also feels less functional than a big park should. Do people come here to hang out, do they come here to play sport or to enjoy nature. On all... More

I like going for walks around Waterloo Park. I am quite upset that they had removed the loop parking lot due to ION construction, another rant for another time. I do like parking off of Westmount and walking across the field with the band shell, though I wish they hadn't removed the big beautiful wooden play structure that I had... More

great for dog walking, sun loving, shade seeking, cross country skiing, biking The uneven terrain makes this park so interesting. We found a creek, sat in the afternoon sun, enjoyed the pavilion, watched kids on bikes. At Christmas time, they put on a light show at night, very fun to take the kids to. Simply a pleasure.
