Best Campsites within Kitchener-Waterloo – WRX Top 4

 

 

Best Campsites within Kitchener-Waterloo

 

As spring and summer draw near, the allure of the great outdoors looms ever larger in the imaginations of winter-weary Kitchener-Waterluvians. As the winds of winter blow, it’s only natural to think about fun outdoor activities like camping. Camping, for some, involves a tent, for others it involves a trailer, and for some it involves a cabin (log or otherwise). But in every case, it means getting to live closer to nature (with all the thrills that entails) and foregoing some of the comforts of urban/suburban life. Many individuals, couples, groups, and families look forward to travelling out into the woods every summer to their favourite campsites, where they’ll enjoy crackling fires, rippling waters, and tall trees. It’s usually worth the drive!

The Hubertushaus Club

 

 

Hubertushaus Club

 

Hello, and a very warm welcome to the WRX Property Group website and blog. You may or may not know that Kitchener is a city steeped in German tradition and culture. Of course, a wide spectrum of people live and work in the city, but its early days – back when it was called Berlin – saw many German-speaking, Mennonite settlers from Pennsylvania coming to call the area home (and over the decades, many people arrived from Germany, Switzerland, and elsewhere, too). You can read all about Kitchener’s history (and their present) in the WRX feature on the city here. Over the past week, we’ve been looking at each of Kitchener-Waterloo’s five German cultural clubs: Schwaben Club, Concordia Club, Alpine Club, Transylvania Club, and Hubertushaus, the subject of today’s article. These clubs are fixtures of the community, and it’s good to be aware of where they are, and what they’re like, if you’re interested in Kitchener-Waterloo’s Oktoberfest (because these clubs serve as the heart of the famous festivities).

Best Parks in Kitchener

 

Kitchener is a city that truly has the best of both worlds: thriving urban centres interspersed with forested fields of green. Everywhere you look, you’re sure to find a park worth visiting: whether it’s the stretched-out Forest Heights Community Trail in the northwest, or Chicopee Ski & Summer Resort in the east, there are outdoor opportunities to enjoy throughout Kitchener. We’re going to get into a top 5 list shortly (because who doesn’t love a good top 5 list?) but first, I’d just like to emphasize that the City of Kitchener has done a great job in ensuring that every community has access to a park. While some are bigger than others, the fact remains that wherever you choose to live in the city, there will be some green space nearby to enjoy. That said, let’s get into the list you’ve all been waiting for… The Top 5 Parks in Kitchener! Starting with… Number five.
