Oakbrook Neighborhood Real Estate and Homes for Sale
The Oakbrook Neighborhood is located in just west of I-205, approximately six miles from the city center. Oakbrook contains plenty of open green space, including unused land (timbered or cleared), parks and playgrounds. Oakbrook Park, with its playground, picnic tables, play fields, tennis courts and a paved walking path, offers residents a place for recreation of many kinds.The park has a number of old growth oak trees as well as trees that were planted more recently. A source of pride for the residents is a natural area, providing habitat for flora and fauna, called Beaver Marsh (pictured). Included here is a meandering trail with two crossings over Burnt Bridge Creek. In 1995 a wooden footbridge was constructed over the creek which enables walkers to enjoy this trail year around.
Most of the housing was built in or around the decade of the seventies. The homes reflect the single-family character with many styles. Aged trees that offer abundant shade cover much of the neighborhood. The owner occupancy rate is well above the city average. Most of the land is developed for single family residential homes. In the northeast corner there is an area that is developed for multi-family residences. Extensive retail opportunities are located around State Route 500, including Vancouver Plaza, Vancouver Mall and Andresen Plaza.
