Where: Begin at Habitat for Humanity building (corner of Albert and Dorset), end at Waterloo Park
Walk Leader: Robert Shipley
We can learn a great deal about local cultural heritage and planning from the buildings and spaces in a few small blocks in Waterloo. The streets and open spaces immediately north of up-town Waterloo have been designated as a heritage conservation district for a very good reason.
Albert, MacGregor, Fountain and few other short streets as well as Waterloo Park provide us with a wonderful assortment of architectural styles, reminders of the past and planning features that can be read like a book of community development.
Robert Shipley, retired urban planning professor and former head of the Heritage Resources Centre will share humorous stories and a unique perspective on the neighbourhood.
