Huron Community Association

If you’re from Kitchener-Waterloo, chances are that you’ve heard that the southwest part of Kitchener is experiencing rapid growth and development. New neighbourhoods are being constructed, brand new schools are opening their doors, and anywhere you look, you will see progress, energy, and a communal spirit of forward (and upward) motion.
 
In the heart (or perhaps more appropriately, forming one of the outer vanguards) of this expansion is the Huron Area. A beautiful region with enough trails to make trail enthusiasts dance with joy, Huron is one of Kitchener-Waterloo’s newest – and nicest – neighbourhoods.

If you follow Fischer-Hallman Road and turn west on Bleams, you’ll discover something special. Or rather, someplace special. What you’ll find, is Williamsburg, one of Kitchener’s loveliest neighbourhoods. In the corner of southwest Kitchener, Williamsburg is growing rapidly – to be sure, the entirety of southwest Kitchener is – yet it has managed to retain its almost quaint, village-like ambiance.
 
Developed by Schlegel Urban Developments in the 1980s, the Williamsburg Town Centre was indeed planned based on a ‘Village Concept,’ which promoted both social interaction and the local availability of services and amenities. But Williamsburg itself is not the primary subject of today’s article.
 
Today, we here at WRX Property Group will be discussing the Williamsburg Community Association.
