Cedar Hill in the south ward is a small downtown Kitchener neighbourhood built on a prominent hill south of Benton St. The location makes Cedar Hill a very walkable neighbourhood for living, working and recreation. There’s plenty of public transit with the LRT running right along the east boundary. Expressway access is easy along Frederick or Courtland if you choose to drive.
This urban locale is perfect if you are looking for things to see and do. You can check out Centre in the Square, the Auditorium, the Museum, and even play a round of golf at nearby Rockway. Beautiful Victoria Park is just across the road. There are sports fields, courts and pools at two nearby locations.
There’s a decent selection of specialty stores offering foods from a variety of cultures. You can find fresh seafood at T&J’ Seafoods as well as Caudle’s Catch. Of course there are several natural food options too. Central Fresh Market is close as are a Valumart, a Sobeys and a Food Basics. The Kitchener Farmers Market is right across the road from Cedar Hill.
Public schools are close by with the Catholic schools a bit further away. Everything is walkable with the exception of St. Mary’s down on Homer Watson.
Cedar Hill has a wide range of property types. Much of the area to the east is low rise commercial as one would expect in a downtown. Detached homes in Cedar Hill are typically 2 storey or 1 ½ storey dating from the 1920’s into the early 1950’s.
The area also features several completed condo projects such as the very successful Arrow Lofts. Others are underway along King and at the corner of Benton and Courtland.
With the rise of urbanism we are seeing in city planning across the region, Cedar Hill is a great choice for living and working in a walkable downtown environment.
