The neighbourhood of Glen Abbey is found south of Upper Middle Road, north of the QEW between 16 Mile Creek and Bronte Road. One of the most desirable communities in Oakville, it is named after the world-famous Glen Abbey Golf Club, home to the Canadian Open Golf Championship on many occasions. Predominantly built between the mid 80’s and early 90’s, Glen Abbey homes come in a wide variety of styles ranging from large detached homes on wooded or ravine lots, to freehold and condo townhouses, as well as condo apartments. An enclave of luxury detached homes and executive townhomes backing onto the Glen Abbey Golf Club can be found in the Fairways Hills pocket of this neighbourhood.
Families choose to raise their children in Glen Abbey for the first-class amenities it offers. High-ranking schools, both public and private, in combination with up to the minute sports and leisure facilities, and proximity to churches, shopping, restaurants, and professional services, make it a community with an enviably high standard of living.
