Oak Bay: Neighbourhood Guide

Located at the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island is the peaceful neighbourhood of Oak Bay. Situated just far enough away from the bustle of the city, but an easy commute from downtown all while being surrounded by gardens, arbors, and protected old-growth trees. Oak Bay Is truly spectacular filled with Boutique shopping and dining, sandy beaches, and a strong sense of community. Living up to its reputation of grandeur, homes in the area can range from 1800s heritage homes to landmark waterfront estates.


Also located in Oak Bay is the world-renowned Victoria Golf Club that was founded in 1893 and is the oldest 18-hole golf course in Canada. Considering you can golf almost every day of the year here in Victoria, you won’t want to miss this one. Consistently ranks as one of the best courses in the country, it truly is an idyllic location with views of the Olympic Mountains, the coastline, and rolling greens!


Several parks and open spaces in Oak Bay are welcome to dogs on-leash, and some offer seasonal or year-round off-leash areas as well. View the Dogs in Parks page provided by the District of Oak Bay for more Information on where Dogs are allowed!
