Years ago, stone masons constructed many of the limestone and granite buildings now occupied by shops, restaurants, and businesses in Cambridge. This history has been thoughtfully woven into the design of Westwood Village, with a unique opportunity to be a revered gateway to the City of Cambridge. Extensive effort and creativity went into integrating this community with the surrounding natural, rural and urban lands.
A city in the Regional Municipality of Waterloo, Cambridge has carved out its own identity as a new city with a rich history. Formed in 1973 by the amalgamation of Galt, Preston, Hespeler and a small portion of surrounding townships, Cambridge is located at the confluence of the Grand and Speed Rivers. Cambridge is thriving and becoming more and more cosmopolitan as families find homes, robust employment opportunities and vibrant communities that enhance every lifestyle.
Downtown Cambridge is just minutes from Westwood Village. Walking along the downtown streets, you will enjoy the historic stonework that defines each building. Take in some of the many arts and cultural exhibitions, perhaps starting at the Fashion History Museum with some garments dating back to the 1600s, or visit one of the city’s three art galleries: Queen’s Square Gallery, Design at Riverside Gallery and Preston Gallery, each with their own focus and special collections.
Downtown Cambridge is a vibrant community waiting to be discovered. At every corner you will find an homage to the city’s rich history with a new modern twist from trendy shops, cafes, restaurants, and craft breweries that now occupy downtown Cambridge.
Living in Cambridge provides a rich and fulfilling lifestyle. In addition to a multitude of urban amenities, Cambridge is also home to vast parkland and greenery. Canoe or kayak your way along the rivers, bike or stroll through the winding nature trails. There’s so much to explore!
