Live On The Park In Oakville
October 30, 2014
Natural surroundings, safe community, leisurely living, city access - there's no wonder Oakville is ranked in the top five of the best places to live in Canada. Oakville is home to young professionals, families, retirees and to Millstone on the Park - a collection of affordable townhomes now under construction in the heart of Oakville. Located at 25 Dundas St. W., Millstone puts you in the centre of it all: parks and recreation, community facilities, schools, health services, shopping and so much more.
The public transportation makes getting wherever you need to go a breeze. The GO Transit system and convenient access to major highways allows you to easily connect to Toronto without the headache of traffic and countless other delays.
Oakville?s historic downtown area is walking distance to the lake and is the perfect outdoor outing. The summer's Waterfront Festival includes amusement park rides, arts and crafts, food and drink, free concerts headlined by local bands and nightly fireworks. With the many waterfront parks, family friendly walking trails and numerous bike paths - there is something for everyone!
Speaking of everyone, the residents of Oakville enjoy cuisine from all over the world - all within a short walk, ride or drive. You can dig into all-you-can-eat Thai and Japanese food at the Spoon and Fork; cut into a juicy steak (with a side of frites) at The Keg; taste the flavours of Greece at Colossus; or feel comforted with a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs at Ritorno.
There are plenty of pubs and bars to catch the game or enjoy an evening out with that special someone or friends.
With a rich artistic culture, Oakville boasts many events, societies and galleries dedicated to the arts. The Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts houses several performances by local and international artists. It is also the performing venue of the Oakville Symphony Orchestra, the Oakville Children?s Choir and the Oakville Ballet Company.
The Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival and the For the Love of the Arts Festival are two prominent annual events that showcase further artistic talents. The Jazz Festival features local and international talent while For the Love of the Arts serves to promote skills, crafts, literary art, dance performances, theatre groups and musical performances. With its varied events and many opportunities, Oakville brings the community together in a shared space fostering friendship, creating memories and building spirit.
