The city of Cambridge was created in 1973 by the amalgamation of three independent municipalities: Galt, Preston, and Hespeler. It is in the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosauonee peoples. Today, many Cambridge citizens will still say that their home lies in one of the founding municipalities, instead of Cambridge as a whole. The city is located in Southern Ontario at the junction of the Speed and Grand Rivers, within the municipality of Waterloo. It forms part of the “Tri-Cities” alongside Waterloo and Kitchener. A visit to Cambridge in the summer is a must-do, with its many cultural events and activities, including the Rock the Mill Music Festival and Cambridge Highland Games. Escape to a warm tropical oasis of colour and family fun with a visit to the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory, or explore local wildlife in Riverside Park.

Back in the 80’s, I was involved in one of the gravel hearings in an effort to protect the creek – in the end we lost which turned me off the whole thing for a while. But then seeing my son's work on the creek and seeing the great turn around – the restoration on Mill Creek is a great success story.
