OakPark – Residential
OakPark is an award-winning (Urban Design and Architectural Design Awards) 200-acre (81 hectares) community in north Oakville offering innovative housing designed along the principles of “new urbanism”. Originally part of a larger 400-acre (162 hectares) Metrontario development, OakPark is designated to become the new town centre for all of north Oakville. The homes in OakPark are being built by Tribute Communities and Ballantry Homes, two of the finest builders in the Greater Toronto Area.
Upon completion, the community is planned to include a 27-acre (11 hectares) park and lake, approximately 1 million square feet (93,000 square metres) of retail development, over 3 million square feet (279,000 square metres) of office development and housing for 10,000 residents. Seniors’ housing in OakPark includes the Halton Region’s Post Inn Village facility and the Chartwell Classic Oakville Retirement Residence. The park, which was the subject of an international design competition, is a centre for summer and winter activities, including impromptu hockey games and figure skating and is home to the Wellspring Halton-Peel House in support of cancer patients.
A transit terminal has been constructed in the heart of OakPark to serve the Oakville, Halton, Mississauga and GO Transit systems and the Halton Regional Police operates a police station on Dundas Street in the northwest corner of the community.
