Neighbourhood Facts

The neighbourhood, which owes its name to seventh Canadian Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier, is composed primarily of owner-occupied, detached, single-family dwellings, with a small number of low-rise apartments as well. The majority of construction took place between World War 2 and 1960 with a third of the home constructed in the 1970’s. This is a well established and quiet area with many residents over the age of 60.

Parks and Green Spaces

There are ample opportunities for outdoor recreation in and around Laurier Heights. Residents can take advantage of the nearby Valley Zoo, as well as Laurier Park- a popular site for picnicking. Hawrelak Park, accessed from a footbridge in the River Valley just northeast of the neighbourhood, offers scenic hiking trails.
