Introducing one of Waterloo’s oldest and most sought-after neighbourhoods: Colonial Acres. 

With a mix of modest family homes to huge executive estates, there is something for everyone here. This area attracts those who prefer to live in a mature, established neighbourhood but also want to be close to the best amenities in Waterloo.

Homes in Colonial Acres sit on large lots with good-sized front and back yards, and stand a comfortable distance from their neighbours. Quiet, winding streets are lined with old-growth trees making for peaceful evening walks after dinner. It is a blended community of young and middle-aged families, as well as retired empty-nesters who have lived in their homes for 30+ years. You’ll often see the residents of this area walking their dogs or biking through Anndale Park, which sits in the middle of the neighbourhood.

Colonial Acres is also home to significant amenities including Conestoga Mall, Galaxy Cinemas, several restaurants and home goods stores including The Home Depot and HomeSense. Just north of the residential part of the neighbourhood you’ll find a large industrial area filled with several different types of businesses and manufacturing, resulting in short commutes for those who work and live here. Only a short drive to the expressway, St. Jacobs and Uptown Waterloo, Colonial Acres is centrally located offering valuable convenience.

While this mature area does not offer a public school within its boundaries, students will attend either Lester B. Pearson PS, Lexington PS  or Sandowne PS. Students will then move on to Bluevale Collegiate Institute. Catholic school students are bussed to St. Luke Catholic School for grades JK-8 prior to attending St. David Catholic Secondary School.


Between the plentiful amenities, beautiful homes, quiet streets and close proximity to the expressway, it's easy to see why Colonial Acres is a popular neighbourhood in East Waterloo.
