One of the fastest growing areas in Waterloo Region, the township of Woolwich is a great place to call home.

Visit any of the communities here and you’ll find a mix of old and new. With strong Mennonite roots, it’s common to pass by several horse and buggies in these downtown cores and on quiet neighbourhood streets. It’s a common everyday occurrence for residents, but a delightful sight for those visiting from other areas. But among the multi-generation old family farms, you’ll find several new developments as more and more people are moving out of the larger cities to lay new roots in these special communities.

The largest community in Woolwich is the town of Elmira. Home to the annual Maple Syrup Festival, this once-sleepy town has seen tremendous growth over the past 15-20 years and is continuing to grow every year. It still keeps its charm though with an original downtown core featuring local mom-and-pop stores and restaurants. Elmira offers excellent schools and plenty of new build family homes, making it a great place for families. For those who love to get outside, this town offers plenty of parks, a golf course, the Woolwich Memorial Centre and a great walking trail at the Woolwich Dam and Reservoir.

South of Elmira, you’ll find the charming village of St. Jacobs. People come from all over to visit the much-loved St. Jacobs Farmer’s Market, located just outside of the village. Here you’ll find hundreds of vendors selling a variety of items from food to art to home goods and antiques. The St. Jacobs Country Playhouse is another popular destination among tourists and locals alike, and is a source of tremendous pride for the community. Head into the village for a more quaint shopping experience or stop by one of the local restaurants or Block3 brewery for a snack or beverage. Residents of St. Jacobs can easily walk to the main strip to enjoy these lovely dining, theatre and shopping options.

Woolwich is made up of several other small communities including Conestogo, Heidelberg, Maryhill, Bloomingdale, West Montrose, Floradale and Winterbourne. Enjoy a round of golf in Conestogo or Maryhill, take your dog for a scenic walk at Snyder’s Flats in Bloomingdale or have a romantic moment at the Kissing Bridge in West Montrose. There is much more to see and experience in these rural communities and any one of them would be a great place to call home.

Often considered to be a part of Kitchener-Waterloo, Breslau is another notable area of Woolwich that has grown substantially over the past 15 years. With the feeling and size of most KW neighbourhoods, in Breslau you’ll find rows of new housing, community parks and even a few schools. Breslau is also home to the Region of Waterloo International Airport, so if you’re looking to take a quick trip, this convenience is unmatched.

With all that Woolwich has to offer, it’s become a top contender for those deciding to move outside of the city.
