Description
The city of Cambridge was created in 1973 through the amalgamation of former municipalities Galt, Hespeler and Preston. The Grand and Speed rivers, which wind through Cambridge, supplied power for the mills built on the banks. The city has retained much of its 19th-century architecture.
Cambridge Arts Theatre, 47 Water St. S., presents various performances from September through April; phone (519) 623-4076.
A farmers market operates year-round on Saturday 7-1 (also Wednesday, 8-1, June through August) at 40 Dickson St.; phone (519) 740-4681 or (519) 740-4525.
Scenic recreation trails wind throughout the city and along the banks of the Grand River, including a 10.5-kilometre (7 mi.) stretch of the Trans Canada Trail; opportunities exist for canoeing, bicycling, horseback riding, hiking, fishing and bird-watching.
