Oakridge

Oakridge is a bustling area—a mix of residential neighbourhoods, a busy shopping mall, and Langara College. This area is also a hub for the city's Jewish community. For almost a century, Langara Golf Course has drawn golfers to the area. Oakridge is in south-central Vancouver, south of the gorgeous VanDusen Botanical Gardens.

Neighourhood history and heritage

Although neighbouring Marpole and Kerrisdale experienced steady growth between 1908 and 1929, the community of Oakridge remained in its natural state until the early 1950s, when the CPR developed its land holdings for residential and commercial use.
