Eastbridge

Neighbourhood Guide_Eastbridge (1)

Eastbridge is an active community on the North-East side of Waterloo, away from the bustle of Uptown.  It has been a popular neighbourhood for young families since it was built. Landscaped crescents, ponds, and parks make it a very picturesque neighbourhood, with traffic-calmed streets for children-at-play.  

The homes in Eastbridge are new with many modern comforts. The lots are smaller and reminiscent of Toronto suburbs, but mature trees and well-developed walking trails satisfy the need for nature.

Convenience is also a big selling feature of living in Eastbridge. You have quick access to the expressway if you need to get to the other end of the city or commute, but you’re also minutes from Conestoga Mall and RIM Park.

The residents of Eastbridge have a very friendly, active neighbourhood association that hosts regular seasonal events from Halloween parties to community garage sales. If you’re new to Waterloo Region, you should consider Eastbridge. Your neighbours will help you and your family make new connections and friends.

Location

Eastbridge is an active, family-oriented neighbourhood at the North-East tip of Waterloo. It’s surrounded on the South and West sides by other established neighbourhoods like Lexington and Colonial Acres, while more rural areas of Waterloo Region like Conestogo and St. Jacobs are to the North.
