What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Downtown Waterloo

It's very quiet and small town. There's nothing really here restaurant store wise there is a nice park that's about all ise.

I like going to the movies, walking, hangout, sleepovers, be trouble makers, have fun overall with them.

convenient off street parking so I can see my car from my apartment. when I am taking care of young grandchild, there is a play area on site for her to go to. It is quiet

We don't have any problems with most of the people in our neighborhood as they are mostly people who have children . They play outside and are very well behaved.
