Spotlight on Cambridge Neighbourhoods: HESPELER
Cambridge, Ontario is an amazing and diverse city made up of a selection of unique neighbourhoods to call home. However, before you buy a home in any neighbourhood, you'll want to do some research and make sure it's the right place for you and your needs - if you have a family to keep in mind, if you need to be close to the office, or if you need to be near the best jogging trails, and everything in-between.
In this article, I'll be going into depth about Hespeler, one of my personal favourite neighbourhoods in Cambridge. One of the great things about Hespeler is that the houses range from brand new to historic homes that are over 100 years old. The Speed River runs through the middle of Hespeler and nature lovers will appreciate the miles of scenic trails that surround it. Downtown Hespeler has been continuously improved during the past few years and we even had a James Franco sighting when he was shooting a movie here a few years ago.
