With the St. Jacob’s Farmers market in your backyard, Lakeshore North is a truly unique family neighbourhood sitting between rural landscape and city life. The area is made up of predominantly detached homes built in the 1970’s and 80’s that range from modest bungalows to estate properties. Some condo apartment buildings and semidetached homes also sprinkle the neighbourhood.
To the north of Waterloo is an established mennonite community, so it’s not uncommon to see a horse and buggy coming down Weber Street or Benjamin Road.
The amenities and location of this community were made for family living. The St. Jacob’s Farmers Market is 5 minutes away where you’ll find seasonal produce, local artisans, handcrafted furniture, and a two-story renovated barn filled with shops and food vendors.
There are public, catholic, and french immersion schools within walking distance, as well as a nursery for preschoolers. Lutherwood heath and social services also has an office in Lakeshore North, providing families with support and counselling should they need it.
Soccer fields, baseball diamonds, the Trans Canada Trail, and Laurel Creek Conservation Area are all at your doorstep for some outdoor fun with the family. Love day trips? Keep heading north and you’ll find the village of St. Jacob’s, the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival, the Fergus Highland Games, and camping in the quaint town of Elora.
