Neighbourhood Guide

Oakridge

West Side, Vancouver

Home to the Oakride Centre and Langara College, Oakridge boasts several large green spaces, mature tree-lined streets and an excellent 18 hole golf course.

The transformation of Oakridge is going to be nothing short of astounding.

What was once the Oakridge Centre is quickly morphing into a stunning 400+ hectares of sleek modern high rises, a new shopping centre and cultural hub in the heart of the city.

Oakridge, in it’s original form, is a highly diverse community with excellent transit, parks and schools in, and around, the community.  With the addition of Oakridge Park, this west side neighbourhood is quickly becoming a highly sought after destination.
