Map of Oakville

Welcome to Oakville!

The lakeside community of Oakville lies 40 km west of Toronto, with the city of Mississauga separating the two. This lively suburb promotes its ability to provide large city services without losing the small town atmosphere. Numerous cultural venues exist in the town, the premier being the Oakville Centre where some 260 music, drama, or variety performances are staged each year. There is a fine selection of galleries, a few museums and several festivals, including the three-day Oakville Waterfront Festival in June. There are two natural harbours that offer sail and powerboat docking privileges for visitors, as well as several private boating clubs for those wishing permanent moorage. And for those who favour green over blue, there are seven golf courses. Glen Abbey Golf Course is especially notable as it has played host to the Canadian Open many times. An assortment of restaurants, bars, and shopping establishments exist, but there is also green spaces for those wishing to stretch out.
