Video Tour of Westvale

In the southwest corner of Waterloo is a much-loved area known as Westvale, a well-established neighbourhood which dates back more than 30 years. When it was first built, Westvale was on the outer limits of the city. As Waterloo’s reach has expanded,Waterloo movers have embraced Westvale, offering affordable homes on large lots, all close to good schools and the new Boardwalk.

The Boardwalk brought the best of the city to the west side, with a 10-screen Cineplex, several restaurants and retail stores, and the new Medical Centre, now within walking distance of Westvale.

Westvale’s population is also starting to grow as a number of new homes are being built in the subdivision. Most of the homes are older though, averaging over 25 years old. The benefits of these older homes include spacious lawns and comfortable distances between neighbours. The sizes of Westvale homes also range from intimate townhouses to four-bedroom, four-bath family homes.

Its proximity to the universities also makesWestvalea popular location for Waterloo student housing.  Students often take up residence in a basement suite of these family homes. Seniors also find Westvale appealing with the addition of the new Westhill Senior Community, offering them quick access to doctors, shopping and mass transit.

Schools in West Vale include Westvale Public School, a JK-6 school. Holy Rosary Catholic School is also in Westvale.

Middle school students who attend public school are bussed to Centennial Public School, which also offers French immersion classes.

Westvale high school students can either walk to Resurrection Catholic Secondary School or can be bussed to Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate & Vocational School.

Westvale also boasts one of the most active and lively community associations in Waterloo. With monthly events including a summer carnival, an Easter egg hunt, and a holiday lights contest, The WestVale Community Association likes to have fun.
