Grand River North’s boundaries are made up approximately by Victoria Street North in the north (technically an arm of Highway 7); the Grand River in the east (fittingly); Misty Street and Ottawa Street North in the south; and Heritage Drive and Natchez Road in the west.
It is one of Kitchener-Waterloo’s newer developments, with the oldest homes dating back to the 1980’s, and much of the construction having taken place within the 21st century. By far, most of the households here are owned (as opposed to rented), and though there is a large amount of couples and singles, the largest single group of homeowners is families.
You’ll find many young children here, with over 60% of households including children living at home.
