Bronte

Bronte is the community that makes up much of the west end of Oakville, in Ontario, Canada. Founded in 1834, Bronte began as a small fishing village at the mouth of Twelve Mile Creek. Twelve Mile Creek (known informally as Bronte Creek) flows through the middle of town and empties into Lake Ontario. Main roads include Bronte Road (north-south), Lakeshore Road West (east-west, parallel to Lake Ontario) and Rebecca Street (east-west). Streets in the business section include Lakeshore, Jones, Marine, and Ontario Street. Bronte is also accessed via a superhighway (the Queen Elizabeth Way) located to the north of the former village.

The College Park area is bordered by Upper Middle Road on the north, Sixteen Mile Creek on the west, Trafalgar Road on the east, and the QEW on the south. The neighbourhood was originally established in the 1950s and has continued to grow into the neighbourhood it is today, with a collection of active parks, open spaces, trails and waterways.

Falgarwood

The Falgarwood neighborhood is bounded by Upper Middle Road on the North, Trafalgar Road on the West the QEW to the South and East. The area was developed 26 to 60 years ago and now boasts mature trees and wonderful walking trails. There is a wide range of homes from large brick properties backing onto ravines to towering classic condos overlooking Lake Ontario in walking distance of Sheridan College. Morrison Valley cuts through Falgarwood and creates two distinct areas. The area closest to Trafalgar Road is densely populated with townhomes, semis as well as large 15 plus storey apartment buildings. Oakville town hall is located here. East of Morrison Valley is suburban which was built during the late 50s and early 60s (with a few modern pockets). This area is heavily treed with detached bungalows, split level and two storey homes. There are also condo and freehold townhomes.

Glen Abbey

Over the last 30 years, the Glen Abbey property has come to define the character of the Oakville community. While most widely recognized for its role in Canadian golf and the home of the Canadian Open, the 92.7-hectare (229-acre) property has a diverse past that contributes to its cultural heritage. Its lands were home to Indigenous peoples recognized under the 1763 Royal Proclamation. Beginning in 1795, treaties with the British resulted in new settlements on the lands beside Sixteen Mile Creek, notably farms and a sawmill. In the early 20th century, the current property was first consolidated as the private RayDor estate. It then became a 1950s Jesuit religious retreat, and a 1960s golf course country and ski club. Its current form is dominated by the 1970s vision to design the lands to provide an innovative hub and spoke, spectator-friendly golf course for both recreational and championship use.
