Laurentian Hills

If you look at Kitchener’s Southern side, you will find Laurentian Hills. Laurentian is a well-developed neighbourhood and is a very established area, with homes fit for any new family. In this community, you will find plenty of green spaces, schools and recreational services. Laurentian Hills is the perfect place to find your home and join a tight-knit community.


Laurentian Hill is a sought after area, as it has everything you need within a short distance. Located on Kitchener’s Southside with easy access to the 401 and HWY-08.

Laurentian is lucky to have many recreational options, with a variety of choices for all. At the top of McLennan Park, you will find the tallest peaks in the K-W region, which has gained notoriety as a tobogganing hill in the wintertime.
