River Oaks

The neighbourhood

The upscale River Oaks community on picturesque Sixteen Mile Creek is often compared to Glen Abbey for its variety of house styles and price points. While most River Oaks homes were built in the late-90s and early-00s, vintage, urban-style detached carriage homes, and semi and detached homes have been added to the mix in recent years. Those looking for more maintenance-free living find the newer condominium apartments and family-friendly townhomes in the thriving Oak Park Urban Village section of River Oaks an attractive option.

The amenities

Residents in River Oaks enjoy convenient access to big box chain shopping, restaurants, spas, and other professional services. River Oaks is surrounded by many nature trails and parks, such as the Oakville Heritage Trail that runs along the east side of Sixteen Mile Creek. The River Oaks Community Centre and state-of-the-art Sixteen Mile Sports Complex ensure that family fitness needs are met. Desirable daycare and renowned schools – including the private Rotherglen School – round out the amenities available.
