Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Terrace on the Square in Waterloo

Fun, interesting, and varied, our programs and common spaces are designed to enhance your physical, social, emotional, intellectual, vocational, and spiritual well-being. The best part? Your participation is completely up to you, depending on your interests, abilities, and time. You can enjoy whichever options you find most appealing on our events calendar, or take part in casual socializing with your friends and neighbours.

Participate in our engaging activities

There’s always a lively range of activities available at our retirement residence. Sit back and relax (or get up and dance!) when you attend live performances by visiting musicians and other entertainers. Challenge your neighbour to a game of shuffleboard, billiards, or one of our in-house video games. Learn something new from a guest speaker or cultural activities, get in touch with your creative side with craft workshops or gardening, or meet a new four-legged friend during a pet visit. If you don’t feel like driving, join your peers aboard our shuttle bus for a day trip in and around Waterloo to check out an art or sporting event, restaurant, or sightseeing opportunity.

Explore our variety of on-site amenities

Excellent on-site amenities mean you can pursue your hobbies or try something new, right at home! Do your workout at our fitness centre or join one of our workout classes. Take your book and a cup of coffee out to our inviting covered terrace, or stroll our well-tended outdoor paths. Culinary programs at our spacious country kitchen are always popular, too. Drop by the library to find a new biography or novel, or attend a service in the chapel. Our comfortable TV room is a great place to watch a movie, while our kids zone provides you with a welcoming space to host the little ones in your life.
