Welcome to Clair Hills
On the west end of Waterloo is a subdivision of newer homes called Clair Hills. The farther you go into the division, the larger the homes get. This is especially true as you enter Rosewood Estates. These homes enjoy a gorgeous backdrop, which happens to be one of Waterloo’s best kept secrets: the Clair Forest. With over five kilometers of walking trails amid dense woods of 30-foot tall trees, Clair Forest is both beautiful and peaceful. You can often walk those trails without encountering another human being.
The houses found in this welcoming subdivision range from small bungalows to large executive homes, most of which were built within the past eight years. These properties are ideal for those who want beauty without the pressures of maintaining vast landscapes. The lots are small and the neighbourhoods provide an attractive air of intimacy. For those prepared to emigrate to Canada, at Clair Hills you will get a new home with many modern features.
With the development of the huge shopping center and Cineplex, the Boardwalk, the west end has become a lot more appealing to people seeking housing in Waterloo. Restaurants and entertainment are abundant, Blackberry offices on Columbia Avenue are ten minutes away, and the area is populated with young, active families.
Waterloo residents who enjoy active lifestyles and who appreciate the great outdoors will find just what they are looking for in Clair Hills. Nature trails are abundant, as are tennis courts, basketball courts and outdoor skating rinks.
The Clair Hills Neighbourhood Association sponsors multiple events throughout the year to foster friendship and community among its residents. The events include a Fall Funfest; an annual, community-wide Spring Cleaning; and a community-wide yard sale.
