Situated just south of the QEW (great for commuters!) and north of Rebecca Street, bordered on the east by Dorval Drive and on the west by Bronte Road. Much of West Oakville was developed between the 1940’s and 1960’s. Split level homes and post war bungalows set under a canopy of mature trees on larger than average lots.
It is still considered a moderately priced neighbourhood though many of the original homes are being extensively renovated or torn down to accommodate new builds. Its proximity to the lake, the highway, two GO stations and downtown Oakville adds to the appeal of this community.
The YMCA on Rebecca Street offers programs for all members of the community and continues to play a crucial role improving the quality of health and life for many in Oakville. West Oakville is also home to the non-profit Bronte Tennis Club with its welcoming clubhouse and 8 courts, all under lights. It offers affordable memberships, league play and lessons for both children and adults.
The Queen Elizabeth Park Community & Cultural Centre is Oakville’s newest ‘in spot’, a unique and dynamic public space created to fulfill the recreation, arts and cultural needs of the community. It offers inspiring programs for all ages and abilities and boasts an aquatics centre, 2 gyms, a youth centre, dance studios, a fine arts studio, art gallery, an older adult centre and much more!
