Olde Oakville is the most historically storied area of Oakville, being bordered by Chartwell Road to the east, Cornwall to the north, Sixteen Mile Creek to the west and Lake Ontario to the south. Large lots and quaint charming streets lined with older trees help create a secluded atmosphere. Close proximity to Downtown Oakville also lends itself to a fantastic walking and running culture in the area. Downtown Oakville is home to some of the best restaurants, galleries, boutique shops, cafes and waterfront parks in the country.
There is plenty of old money in Old Oakville, and you’ll find lots of affluent families with kids, as well as many empty nesters and seniors. There’s also an influx of young professionals populating those condos and town homes. This is a very popular area, and those who can afford it absolutely adore it.
As with most of Oakville, there’s a beautiful waterfront and refreshing greenery at every turn. What’s unique about this area, however, is that historic feel throughout much of it—something noticeably different from the newer areas in Oakville. There’s a unique charm that continues to appeal to people. Go for a stroll and you’ll see for yourself!
