Oakwood is a small west end neighborhood, adjacent to the boroughs of Greentree and Crafton. This quiet and relaxed community is in close proximity to Downtown, yet it retains a suburban character.

Oakwood Park houses recreation facilities and a newly renovated playground. Shopping is available at nearby Parkway Center Mall.

Pleasant homes complemented by large yards and abundant greenery stand quiet along the shady streets in Oakwood. Undeveloped land and wooded areas are still abundant, giving some parts of the neighborhood an almost rural character.

Community festivals and clean-ups are common here, and everyone gets involved. A family-oriented neighborhood, kids play soccer in the street and neighbors hold old-fashioned block parties. Residents enjoy their quiet oasis, just minutes from busy Downtown.
