Oaklands Neighbourhood Overview

Oaklands neighbourhood is centrally located in Victoria with a mixture of single-family homes, townhomes and condo/apartments.  A popular neighbourhood with young families because of its parks, schools and proximity to downtown Victoria.  Many of the streets are lined with mature chestnuts, Garry oaks and flowering fruit trees. Oaklands is also home to a number of notable heritage residences dating to the early 1900’s; the Jewish Cemetery, which was established in 1860 and sits atop Fernwood Hill; and Oaklands Elementary, which originally opened in 1913 and is the location for Oaklands’ popular Sunset community market.

Oaklands is also home to Hillside Mall, a major shopping center for the region, medical and dental offices, restaurants and neighbourhood convenience stores and a growing neighbourhood village, known as Haultain Corners.

What we love

The walkability of this neighbourhood is excellent as is the community spirit.  Of special note is the Oaklands Community Centre’s  commitment to family and neighbourhood programming.  And don’t miss the fabulous Oaklands Sunset Market, which runs form June to September on Wednesday evenings and features food from local growers, artisans, live music and a beer garden.
