My Cambridge Neighbourhoods Guide

For many, the search for the right community leads to a fork in the road: Do you choose the smaller, tight-knit town with plenty of local charm? Or do you go with the convenience and energy of a big city?

When you live in Cambridge, you don’t have to compromise. You get all the vibrancy of a growing city with the warmth of a small town.

Our Community

The people of Cambridge are the heart of the community; they make living here truly special. One of the many things I love about our community is that you can walk into the local bakery and be greeted with the same friendly, smiling face that you would in a large grocery store.

Our vibrant city with great housing inventory of all price points and sizes as well as the close proximity to the 401, attract a diverse demographic. The city is growing and evolving but continuing to maintain that small town sense of charm.

The Real Estate

The most common property type in Cambridge is the freehold detached home. I expect the demand for these family homes will continue to flourish, as Cambridge has many wonderful schools, programs, and attractions that families look for.

In recent years, Cambridge has seen an exciting influx of residential and commercial developments. The increasing demand for condo properties has led to a surge in condominium developments, and there are wonderful new seniors’ residencies being built across various municipalities. Cambridge’s Gaslight District is also growing quickly, and will soon be home to many up-and-coming tech companies.

What to Do and See

From tourist spots to hidden gems, Cambridge has it all. The trails along the Grand River are dear to my heart, but I also love touring the streets downtown. There, you can happen upon a great festival or art exhibit at any moment, shop at the many charming stores, or find a new favourite restaurant.

Embracing the Local History

The city of Cambridge was built upon the success of its local mills, and that heritage hasn’t been forgotten. There are several very special establishments that celebrate our local history, including the historic Sheave Tower in Blair and Cambridge Mill in Galt, where you can enjoy a delicious meal in a beautiful setting.

Getting Around

Living in Cambridge grants you easy access to Highway 401 and other arterial roads, including Dundas Street East, King Street East, Hespeler Road, and Water Street South. If you’re looking for cross-city travel, Grand River Transit can take you throughout the Waterloo Region. If you’re a cyclist, you’ll enjoy the 280+ kilometres of off-street trails and on-street routes that run through the area. For travel outside of the area, you can choose from GO Transit, Coach Canada, and Greyhound bus services.

My East Galt Roots

I’ve called East Galt home for many years now; it’s where I’ve grown my business, built my home, and am raising my family. My father-in-law (with the help of his team at Chrisview Custom Homes) built many of the homes in the neighbourhood, which makes living here all the more special.
