Oak Bay               

The early 1960’s saw the last push of substantial development in Oak Bay, with Oak Bay Marina being established and the final residential neighbourhoods built out The architecture of Oak Bay reflects many styles prominent through its history, with fine examples of Tudor Revival, Art Deco, Arts and Crafts and more found throughout the tree-lined neighbourhoods. Throughout its history, Oak Bay has been  one of the most desirable places to live in Greater Victoria; it has maintained its primarily single-family residential nature, growing by just 0.1% annually over the last 50 years

Oak Bay is a community of British heritage, and has a stereotyped reputation as a quaint, charming neighborhood with a genteel British atmosphere. Oak Bay has been referred to as being located "Behind the Tweed Curtain", a lighthearted allusion to the Iron Curtain. Tour guides continue to refer to it as "More English Than England Itself".  Oak Bay is home to several popular beaches, most notably Willows Beach.


Oak Bay is within School District 61. There is one public elementary school, Willows Elementary, one public middle school, Monterey Middle School, and one public high school, Oak Bay High School, with the second largest student population in the Greater Victoria School District.[8]

Residents in the South Oak Bay area may also register their children at the nearby Margaret Jenkins Elementary (in Victoria).

There are two private schools located in Oak Bay, Glenlyon Norfolk School and St. Michael's University School.

Half of the University of Victoria campus is located within the District of Oak Bay, while the other half is in adjacent Saanich.

The discrete area of the Uplands is a residential neighbourhood that is home to many of the most expensive properties in Canada, including stately turn of the century houses of the Arts and Crafts and Faux Tudor styles, as well as new high-end construction. Several of the waterfront residential properties in the Uplands and South Oak Bay count themselves amongst the most expensive private properties in Canada and North America.

The Victoria Golf Club is located in South Oak Bay. It was founded in 1893, and is the second oldest golf course west of the Great Lakes. It is a challenging 6000 yard links course which hugs the ocean side, and claims to be the oldest golf course in Canada still on its original site.
