Close to the bustling city of Waterloo and all its tech jobs, Beechwood is one of the area’s older and highly sought-after neighbourhoods. Established in the early 1970s, the neighbourhood features an assortment of large, traditional homes built prior to the early 1980s on large lots complete with mature trees that offer plenty of privacy.
The neighbourhood is broken down into three distinct areas: Beechwood proper, or Old Beechwood, Upper Beechwood and West Beechwood, the latter two being developed in the ‘90s.SEE MORE COMMUNITIES
All 320 hectares of the private setting is ideal for families. Beechwood is home to six community pools and features such recreational opportunities as tennis courts, parks, soccer fields, skating rinks, playgrounds and paved walking trails that meander through the neighbourhoods’ many trees.
Given Beechwood’s central Waterloo location, many residents commute to the city with ease. The shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities available in Uptown Waterloo are a short drive away, as are both Conestoga Mall and The Boardwalk shopping centre.
And, with Sir Wilfred Laurier and Waterloo universities close by, the area is ideal for students with many renting basement apartments in the homes. In fact one end of the neighbourhood runs along the University of Waterloo along Westmount Road.
Beechwood falls under the City of Waterloo’s Ward 6 Central-Columbia riding of which Jeff Henry is the current Councillor. The population, according to the 2006 census is 7,990.
