Family friendly with leisure activities galore - tennis, baseball, cricket, swimming, soccer, footy & more all at your door step. Well connected to city via fwy, bus, bike path & zone 1 train. Great spot near the creek - dog friendly too!

Good suburb on the eastern side of Pascoe Vale Road. Western side is as bad as the rest of Glenroy. Oak Park Station is not attended at night but it does not seem to get the troubles the Glenroy has.

Nice suburb that is well located and connected. Was once affordable. Now becoming expensive.

Beautiful Suburb. Very peaceful. Surrounded by parklands & Bike Path to the city. Great local Kindergarten and Oak Park Primary School is terrific. Really good local people & good public transport options.

Quiet and friendly family atmosphere; all residential other than a small shopping strip. Plenty of parkland. Bike path to the city. In Zone 1 for public transport with good bus and train services. Close to city and airport: 15 mins either way outside peak
