The Galt Area
West Galt, Cambridge is a quiet neighbourhood with plenty of surrounding nature including lakes, forests, and wetlands. These natural habitats contribute to the diverse wildlife that can be spotted in common backyards.
Though these wild areas exist, it does not mean that the area is stuck in the middle of nowhere. It is close enough to Cambridge city center that shopping, eating out, going to the mechanic shop, banking, and various other activities are still within convenient reach.
There is some investment potential for these homes. For example, though it is not within walking distance, the sub-10-minute drive/20-minute walk to Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and Hi-Mark college make them good for student housing. Renting these properties out can be a good investment opportunity.
There are many attractions in the area that range from special-interest to family-friendly. Some of these attractions include:
- Beautifully architected historical buildings such as Grace Bible Church and Central Presbyterian church.
- The Cambridge Butterly Conservatory
- Hamilton Family Theatre

- Shade’s Mills Conservation Area
In addition to this, the subdivision is only 5 minutes by car from the city center of Cambridge where the grand River cuts through. The Grand River and surrounding city make for beautiful strolling, fishing, tubing, and sightseeing venues. The river is beautifully adorned by classical architecture while maintaining the clean presentation of modern design
One downside of this area could be that it is somewhat out of the way in terms of the 401 highway. However, it is surrounded in a tidy system of regional roads and local highways that ensure that is it well-integrated into the greater surrounding area.
For example, the ON-85 system ensures that the area can transit seamlessly onto the 401. Cambridge also has great public transportation integration with Waterloo as well as Kitchener through the GRT and ION systems.
There is no shortage of green spaces and natural areas in West Galt including Victoria Park (Cambridge), Heise Park, Cambridge Pollinator Preserve, Orr’s Creek, Riverbluffs Park, Dickson Park, the Grand River, and the Dumfries Conservation Area. Being as close to the Grand River as these townhomes are is definitely a major advantage.
The Grand River holds a lot of potential for leisure activities that span many industries such as wildlife photography, fishing, canoeing, tubing, biking, running, and swimming.
There are many options in terms of shopping within the town such as grocery, hardware, outdoor leisure, thrift stores, and outlet malls. Whatever a homeowner could need in their day-to-day, it’s guaranteed to be found within a short drive. Some of the major shopping districts include Pinebush and Hespeler, the Cambridge Centre, Fairview Mall, Conestoga Mall, and countless other smaller strip malls.
There are many elementary and secondary schools in the area. Still, the closest ones to this property are Highland Public School, St. Andrew’s Senior Public School, Southwood Secondary School, Central Public school, St. Gregory Catholic Elementary School, and countless other schools of varying academic levels. There are many great schools within a convenient reach and access to education, including Catholic schools, is not a concern in this area.
