What is Doors Open?

One day + 43 fascinating locations + FREE admission = Doors Open Waterloo Region! Visit first-time sites and past favourites, for their architecture, their heritage, or the interesting things going on. Some have all three!

Doors Open Waterloo Region is part of Doors Open Ontario, a province-wide initiative of the Ontario Heritage Trust to celebrate community heritage and architecture. Doors Open Waterloo Region takes place on September 21, 2019. It is a family friendly event and most sites are open between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The local Doors Open theme for 2019 is 'Water' and will explore our region’s unique and long history with surface and groundwater. Water is life. Water is local. Water circles the globe, a single, closed cycle. It is fundamental. Our past, our present, our future.

At 16 theme sites, explore the ways water is at the centre of our lives. Indigenous water teachings, water treatment and distribution, watershed conservation and management, water research and science, natural areas and recreation, rivers, waste water, flooding and floodplains, water efficiency in buildings, waterpower, bridges…all will be included in this year’s Doors Open. Water-themed talks, walks, displays and activities will help you get your feet wet (sorry – we just had to say it)!
