The Speed of Change

The Speed of Change in the Belmont/Westmount of Kitchener & the Fairview/Uptown West neighbourhood of Waterloo

When: Sunday, May 5, 1:30-3 p.m.

Where: Begin at Iron Horse Trail at Catalyst 137, and end atGlasgow and Belmont

Walk Leader: Barbara Larke

Our walk through time will look at the development of Westmount/Belmont in Kitchener and its related neighbourhood of Fairview and Uptown West in Waterloo.

Two years ago when I did this walk there had been dramatic changes in these neighbourhoods. Well, change never stops, so I have new developments and discoveries to share.

Come and find out about those “Iron Horses” on the trail, the long gone industries of the area, the growth of Belmont Village, and the recent changes to this vibrant part of KW.

The starting point is accessible by bus from both Glasgow (route 4) and Belmont (route 8)
