Becoming known as the Oakwood Village, the Oakwood-Vaughn neighbourhood spans from St. Clair to Eglinton Avenue West. It enjoys a multi-cultural community of largely Italian families, Caribbean shops and restaurants, and local artists.
Nestled between Wychwood, Corso-Italia, and Humewood-Cedarvale, the area has seen a considerable community-driven revitalization over the last decade. The main driving force is the Oakwood Village Community Association that promotes the future of a vibrant, family-friendly, affordable neighbourhood. Nearby Little Jamaica on Eglinton and the many commercial outlets along St. Clair, residents are never too far from shopping, dining, and entertainment. There are still only a few Toronto condos along Eglinton Avenue, but this Midtown neighbourhood is growing and attracting many new residents and developers alike.
One of the best features of Oakwood-Vaughan is the number of excellent public transit options. With bus routes running along Oakwood, Dufferin, and Vaughan Road, residents are minutes from subway stations at St. Clair Subway or Eglinton. For drivers, the Allan Road expressway is two-minutes from Oakwood Ave on Eglinton, with smooth access to the 401.
