Waterloo Public Square

A group of people gather and dance in a public space

The Waterloo Public Square is a place for friends and neighbours to gather in the heart of vibrant uptown Waterloo.

The City of Waterloo works with many groups and organizations to ensure the square is hopping with activity, from concerts and festivals, to fitness programs, markets and everything in between.


The Waterloo Public Square is at 75 King St. S. The nearest intersection is King Street South and Willis Way. It is in front of the Shops at Waterloo Town Square. Parking is available in the lots around the square. To contact the square's program co-ordinator, call 519-747-6125.
