The lands above the QEW highway are by and large planned communities. Redevelopment essentially began in the 80’s and continues today with massive tracts of land just now commencing development north of Hwy 5 (Dundas Street).
The Town of Oakville has been very diligent in planning these neighbourhoods to ensure that the communities are well served by public gathering places, transit systems and a web of scenic nature trails. Community Centres abound, offering swimming, gymnasiums, fitness centres, ice hockey and more. Sports fields, playgrounds and splash pads are also abundant and well situated within the various family oriented neighbourhoods. North Oakville is also home to a world class indoor soccer stadium, appropriate for a town that has one of the largest soccer associations in North America.
Many of the homes built in the 80’s and even early 90’s are being renewed as homeowners renovate to keep up with current trends. Newer homes in North Oakville boast design features such as open concept rooms and higher ceiling heights, and are generally situated on smaller lots than those built in previous decades. In addition to single family homes, more condominium apartment buildings are being erected to keep up with the demands of the growing population. Plenty of “big box” stores and other large shopping plazas currently exist and continue to be built to service the needs of the populace.
Pride of ownership is evident in all neighbourhoods in North Oakville. Each distinctive neighbourhood has its own look and feel and offers unique advantages to its residents.
River Oaks is a newer community bordering on the east side of Sixteen Mile Creek, centrally located in North Oakville. It is a family oriented neighbourhood with most homes built in the late 90’s or early 00’s. Some more recently built condominium apartment buildings are also located here.
Newer homes with old fashioned charm add character to the area. These include Colonial style carriage homes with detached garages at the back, and quaint townhomes, semis and detached homes designed in a vintage urban style. Larger and more upscale homes built along the banks of Sixteen Mile Creek average well over $1 million.
River Oaks residents enjoy miles of nature trails, several parks and very close proximity to major retailers. Rotherglen School - a co-ed private elementary school – is located here.
