About Living in Oakville, Ontario

Transportation

Oakville is very car friendly. The majority of properties for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 407, and it is straightforward to find a parking spot. In contrast, commuting by public transit is challenging in Oakville. Thankfully, property owners can rely on the Oakville Station and Bronte Station on the Lakeshore West Line. There are around 30 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most houses. The bike is a rather poor method of transportation in Oakville as the cycling infrastructure is fairly poor, and the area is not particularly flat. It is also sometimes challenging for people walking to navigate Oakville because running daily errands is occasionally difficult by walking.

Services

A fraction of house buyers in Oakville may be able to access one of over 50 grocery stores on foot, while others will have to turn to another means of transportation. Residents are served by over 400 restaurants and cafes as well. With regards to education, parents and their kids will value that no matter where their property is located in Oakville, daycares and primary schools are close by. In contrast, parents may consider it challenging for their children to access high schools on foot.

Character

The character of Oakville is exemplified by its slower-paced environment. There are over 350 public green spaces close by for residents to explore, like Sixteen Mile Creek and Wildwoods Park, which makes it very easy to get to them. This part of the Greater Toronto Area metropolitan area is quiet overall, as the streets are generally tranquil - however noise can be bothersome around the railway line, Highway 403 or Queen Elizabeth Way.
