    Lovely, historic, city park. No encampments as of April ‘24, disregard any posts saying so. Although perhaps not a destination in and of itself, if you’re in K-W, a worthy place to go for a stroll or let the kids play.

    Doon Heritage Village is a fascinating destination that offers visitors a chance to explore the rich history and culture of
    the region. It has a lot of Exhibits, Artifacts and Outdoor Heritage and Display Buildings you will be delighted with! It was
    a great pleasure to walk through these buildings and feel the mood of those distant times.

    Also some of these historical buildings as well as the red covered bridge were used in the filming of the the original Anne
    of Green Gables movies (1985) and it was a great fun to see these surroundings in real life!

    The staff of the museum is AMAZING, especially Jocelyn, so friendly and helpful and did their best to ensure we had an unforgettable visit!

    I highly recommend visiting this place!

    good walking trail with wildlife surrounding. The markers are easy to follow. Lots of friendly people walking with dogs and family. It would be nice if they pick up their dog poo.

    Thanks to the Region of Waterloo Museums for preserving Schneider Haus, Kitchener, Ontario, for POSTERITY. I would suggest they make a film or a documentary on this Historical Place.

    The Kitchener Waterloo Symphony Orchestra is a jewel. Each concert is polished, and exciting, especially in the Raffi Armenian Theatre at the Center in the Square, which was custom built by and for the orchestra.

    People of all ages can enjoy this open park, something for everyone. Playground, splash pads, parking and open air greenery. Few trees, none of them mature enough to offer any shade.

    A Normanesque style Church, large interior, unobstructed view of the main altar. The original altar still remains & is a work of art! All wood, hand carved. Well worth the visit for whatever reason!

    This is an important part of our Canadian History. I think Colin F. from Toronto should go back there and live in his materialistic world or better yet leave Canada if he doesn't appreciate our history. He needs to read more and get more fully informed and stop judging our historical figures based on modern times.

    You need a bit of time here. There's 4 floors, basement and gift shop. It's an interactive type of museum. My teens really enjoyed it.

    We visited Kitchener City Hall for Christkindl Market. There were so many vendors selling jewellery, christmas ornaments, butter tarts to name some of them. We loved the ice sculpture and enjoyed or visit it though the day was rainy, windy and snowy. There were vendors outside too.
