River Oaks, located north of Upper Middle Road, south of Dundas, east of Neyagawa and west of Trafalgar, has developed into a mature family neighbourhood with all types of housing options. The River Oaks Community Centre is a fantastic hub of activity with a turf soccer field, hockey rink, baseball diamond, gym and more which helps bring the residents of River Oaks together. Close proximity to the shopping centre at Trafalgar and Dundas offer everything you need within a 5 minute drive.
There is definitely more variety to residents in this are than in much of Oakville. There are many first-time homeowners and young families, long-term Oakville residents who have downsized to smaller residences. A detached home will usually go for more than 750K, so you’ll frequently see dual income families with children. However, the presence of those condos and apartments also means you’ll see pretty much all kinds.
Sixteen Mile Creek, and the adjacent Oakville Heritage walking trail, is without a doubt the shining highlight of this area, and there are plenty more parks, trails, and outdoor activities in this area. There’s also the convenient location, great schools, and some seriously in-demand daycares. Sounds like paradise for a family with kids!
