Welcome to Old Oakville
Old Oakville comprises two distinct areas, both in high demand - the historic harbour area south of Lakeshore Road where homes date back to the 1830's and the younger 'new downtown' portion between Trafalgar Road and Chartwell Road, which contains some historic housing stock plus the block by block expansion of the town from the 1930's to the 1960's. Along the eastern edge of the neighbourhood, on Gloucester and Chartwell, are larger properties originally developed as estates within the then Township of Trafalgar. The entire area is highly sought after for the well treed streetscapes, the mix of architectural styles, the small town yet vibrant ambience of Lakeshore Road and the convenience to the Lake. There are many infill developments of luxury townhouses and a small stock of upscale condo apartments.
Walkability, heritage character and small-town ambience are what draws residents to want to live in Old Oakville. The Lakeshore Road main street is a great place for shopping, dining and general people watching. The Downtown Oakville association sponsors many festivals and activities throughout the year. The Oakville Central Branch Library, Oakville Galleries, The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts and the Oakville Centennial Pool share a campus adjacent to the Sixteen Mile Creek at Lakeshore and Navy. Lakeside Park, the Oakville Museum at Erchless Estate, the North Harbour lakeside trails and the Pier are popular destinations, as is simply walking the south of Lakeshore streets enjoying the historic homes. Old Oakville is served by highly regarded public and catholic schools. The private MacLachlan College school is located on Trafalgar Road. There is easy access to the Q.E.W. and to the Oakville GO station.
