New Community, Great Location
Established only in the 1980s, River Oaks is bounded to the north by Dundas Rd, to the south by Upper Middle Road, to the west by 16 Mile Creek, and to the east by Trafalgar Road. It is on the eastern side of the 16 Mile Creek and is filled with homes built during the 1990s and early 2000s plus more recently built apartment buildings and condominiums.
The community of Oak Park includes the North East part of River Oaks and is primarily regarded as the Uptown Core. In it, you can find taverns, restaurants, and large-scale retailers. The neighbourhood at Oak Park is comprised of semi-detached homes, detached homes, high rise and low rise apartments which were all just constructed in the last decade. In fact, much of the community is still undergoing development, which means that there is still a lot to look forward to in the near future.
Living in River Oaks
