Located east of Neyagawa Blvd and just north of Dundas Street, Glenorchy is a brand-new neighbourhood. With the promise to be “one of the most environmentally sensitive community plans in North America” this new Oakville neighbourhood will be completely rebuilt within the next 20 years. Say hello to natural open spaces, commercial uses, walkable and transit-friendly areas and a dense urban core. Everything that residents need will be within close proximity, from sports complexes to grocery stores, walking trails and parks.
The Natural Heritage System, which is over 900 hectares of green space is located within the Glenorchy Sixteen Hollow Neighbourhood. This, along with the river system that is fed by Bronte Creek and the Sixteen Mile Creek, provides residents with local wildlife, open areas, gorgeous views and the ability to immerse themselves in the surrounding beauty of the entire community. A friendly neighbourhood, this community is full of first-time home buyers and young families who have taken advantage of the newer, yet affordable housing options here. Close by is the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex, public and Catholic schools, as well as stores and the village square, all within a short walking distance. This is the place to be if outdoor and green spaces are your calling!
All within close distance to each other, Glenorchy Sixteen Hollow has 5 schools within its community. Schools are from both the public and Catholic school boards and 2 of the schools offer a French Immersion program.
