UpTown Loop

The UpTown Loop sign on a sign pole

The UpTown Loop is a series of three self-guided walking tours in uptown Waterloo that stops at a number of points of interest, including parks, public art and significant architecture.

This tour opened in 2007 as a legacy project to mark the City of Waterloo's 150th anniversary.


Choose from one of three walks.

  • North walk map - Discover uptown Waterloo, complete with first-class shopping and eating establishments. Explore a variety of heritage buildings with true character and catch the reading bug at the library.
  • Lake walk map - Stroll around Silver Lake and discover spectacular Waterloo Park. Admire contemporary architecture at the Perimeter Institute and the Clay and Glass Gallery.
  • South walk map - Uncover the best of both worlds. Take a relaxing stroll in Waterloo's old and new parks, and then re-energize at one of the many restaurants and browse the shopping establishments.

We also have a complete UpTown Loop guide that includes the three tours.
