Living In Oshawa - TOP 5 Best Neighborhoods In Oshawa Ontario To Live In

This video will outline the Top 5 Best Neighbourhoods In Oshawa Ontario To Live In

5. Donevan

The Donevan section is an area of Eastern Oshawa on The Courtice border which is close to the 401 and only a 10 minute drive to any shopping you would need.  New Development is being done at Harmony and Olive with Symphony Towns Developing a community of NEW Townhomes.   This area does not have a lot of turnover making it a very desireable area since not a TON of homes come on the market.  The area has a very high Ownership percentage with 76% of the homes being owner occupied.


4. McLaughlin

 This area is my old stomping grounds, living at the Park and Rossland area from 2013-2017.  In fact, The McLaughlin area will alwasy be where I got married, got a puppy, my daughter was even born while we were living here.  It is a great community with both a lot of original owners still living in their house they purchased back in the 1960's. It is a very quite community with 7 public schools, 4 catholic schools and 16 parks.  The area is made up of 1960's bungalows and side splits, making it very desireable for investors looking to convert single family homes to duplex's


3. Vanier

The Vanier community is a very highly desired area, for both Home Owners and Investors looking to purchase a property within a close proximity to EVERYTHING.  The Oshawa Center shopping mall is located in the Vanier community making it home to over 1,000,000 sf of indoor shopping fun.  This area is also close to the 401, 407 and the Thornton Rd. Go Station which can get you to Union Station in 40-50 Minuets.  The area is built up of homes built between 1960 - 1990, so its not a new area, but is home to a wide array of properties from detached homes, semi-detached homes, town homes, apartments, multi family residential and mixed use properties.  Being in the Vanier area makes it easy to get around without owning a car.


2. Lakeview

Lakeview is probably one pick that will have people scratching their heads as it is in "South Oshawa" which has the "Stay Away" reputation.  Over the years that has been an amazing transition with new people moving to the area due to affordability.  Over the next few years, I see house prices going up at a higher rate due to the amazing affordability of this area.  The main draw, is the close proximity to Lake Ontario and Lakeview Park which is an amazing place to visit.  Whether enjoying the Beach, the park or the trails there is something for everyone.  Especially on special events where you can bring the family to enjoy Ribfests or Canada Day Fire Works.  There is NOWHERE within the GTA that you can find such affordable houseing so close to the water.


1. O'Neil

This is my favorite part of Oshawa due to the style of homes and the histroy behind them.  It is made up of a wide array of homes, from $400.000 bungalows to $1,000,000 + estate homes.  The O'Neil area is home to the Oshawa Hospital and Parkwood Estate which you would have seen if you watched Billy Madison or Some of the X-Men movies.   This area is directly in the middle of Oshawa and is refered to (By Me) as the Heart of Oshawa.   It also has 9 public schools, 4 catholic schools, 1 private school and 9 parks.
