Bounded by Dundas Street to the south, Sixteen Mile Creek to the west, Highway 407 to the north and Trafalgar Road to the east, Glenorchy is one of 4 neighbourhoods that form the New Communities of Oakville.  


Touted to be “one of the most environmentally sensitive community plans in North America”, the New Communities of Oakville will eventually be home to 50,000 people, create nearly 35,000 jobs, and include residential, commercial, employment, institutional and natural open spaces. The area is expected to be built over the next 20 years.  Neighbourhoods in the New Communities of Oakville are walkable, transit-friendly, and incorporates natural open spaces, dense urban cores, commercial uses and employment lands.

One of the town’s greatest achievements is the preservation of over 900 hectares of green space known as the Natural Heritage System (NHS). To put this into perspective, Stanley Park in Vancouver is about 400 hectares; Central Park, New York City is about 340 hectares and High Park in Toronto is about 160 hectares.  A river system flows through this green space, fed by Bronte Creek and Sixteen Mile Creek, while scenic nature trails meander alongside, affording residents the opportunity to experience the beauty the area and the local wildlife.

Glenorchy and the New Communities of Oakville were designed to promote healthy living, therefore it is appropriate that Glenorchy is home to Oakville’s new Sixteen Mile Sports Complex in the North Park Development project which will offer gymnasiums, fitness programs, ice hockey, ice-skating, sports fields, playgrounds, splash pads and much more to meet the needs of the North Oakville residents.

Access to all major highways is very convenient, and Oakville Transit provides local transportation as well as a quick link to both GO Transit and Via Rail.
