Lakeshore map graphic

Considered to be one of the largest and oldest neighbourhoods in Waterloo, Lakeshore is a beautiful area located in the center of the city.

This established neighbourhood features wide streets lined with mature trees, numerous schools and parks as well as a broad range of amenities. It’s no wonder so many families choose this area to call home.

There is something for everyone in Lakeshore with a wide variety of housing options. Made up of both single and semi-detached homes, townhomes and rental apartments, most properties in the neighbourhood were built in the 60s and 70s. While this community is popular among families, you’ll also find many empty-nesters who have lived here for 30+ years, as well as university students just starting out.

With its central location in Waterloo, Lakeshore is a popular choice for those looking for convenient commuting within the Region. Quick access to the expressway, Northfield Drive and Westmount Road make it easy to get around town. Just a short distance from the Universities, Uptown Waterloo, Conestoga Mall and more, residents can easily enjoy amenities throughout the city.

Not only is Lakeshore a short distance from the Universities, but there is also no shortage of schools directly in the neighbourhood. For grades JK-6; N.A. MacEachern PS, Winston Churchill PS, and Cedarbrae PS are available. Whereas Sir. Edgar Bauer PS is available for students in JK-8. Also located directly within the neighbourhood is St. David Catholic secondary school for Catholic students. For public school students moving onto high school, Waterloo Collegiate Institute is available as well.

Arguably one of the best neighbourhoods in the region for families, Lakeshore offers schools, parks and amenities galore!
