Oaklands is an attractive and affordable family neighbourhood in Victoria.
Oaklands is home to Hillside Mall, a major shopping centre for the region. The mall, along with surrounding commercial uses, medical and dental offices, restaurants and neighbourhood convenience stores, form a vital commercial core which is served by high volume traffic and transit routes of Hillside Avenue, Shelbourne and Cook Streets. The community is also home to a growing neighbourhood village, known as Haultain Corners.
Residents enjoy a great deal of parkland in a variety of city parks. Oaklands Elementary School, originally opened in 1913, continues in its role providing education to young children and serving as a resource to local community groups. The landmark Cridge Centre for the Family, BC's oldest registered non-profit society, is located in Oaklands.
Oaklands has other heritage features including a number of residences and structures and the Jewish Cemetery which was established in 1860 and sits atop Fernwood Hill.
