The Oakville Interactive Map features helpful and informative tools which can help residents to pinpoint just what exactly it is that they want to see or find.

Another feature is the greenspace map, which has a ‘point identify’ tool which lets people have a look at the exact kind of green space is nearby. Viewing where wood lands, valley land and natural heritage systems are located is made super easy.

Since its summer, the most popular map would no doubt be the trail and cycleways map which allows residents to see Oakville’s trails, cycleways, trail features and walkways. The map also has updated information on trail closure as soon as it is available.

If you are a cyclist, you will no doubt enjoy browsing the link to Google Street View wherein you can see the bike routes on street level view and will allow you to decide if that particular street or route is good for your needs, all in the comfort of your couch, desk, or home. Isn’t that exciting?

According to a press release, Mayor Burton says that "Council supports developing online resources that simplify the way Oakville residents access information to explore our amazing town," and adds "The new interactive maps are great tools for planning an outdoor Oakville adventure with family and friends."
