Once surrounded by farmland, Laurel Creek Conservation Area is now a 294 hectare oasis in northwest Waterloo. 

The park and reservoir offer something for everyone, with close to 130 campsites, several picnic areas, sports fields and picnic pavilions for large groups. There are trails for the avid hiker, cyclist or naturalist. Water enthusiasts can take a leisurely paddle around the lake or go for a swim at the beach.
