I used to love visiting Waterloo Park, but since the LRT was put in, it doesn't feel the same going for a visit.

During late November and December the park has amzing light displays on. Perfect for a quiet walk, horse and cart ride or just drive thru the lane.

Nice park to go for a walk. Small lake with a bridge to walk over, petting zoo, large fields if you have a dog. Lots of shade as well to hide from the hot sun.

Lots to do in the park! There is an animal farm as well as a large field, many gardens, a play park, waterpark, and lake. It is right Uptown and a fantastic place to spend the day

We took a walk through waterloo park this past weekend with our kids and really enjoyed the Christmas light display. The phones to call Santa directly were a nice touch. Unfortunately we missed the last horse drawn carriage ride, but we did see the horses...More

Waterloo park is beside Silver Lake. It is not part of the Grand River, so there are no "rapids" at the park.
