Oakland is a tiny hamlet which is located at the crossing of the old Highway 24 and Oakland Road. This area is comprised of century homes as well as more modern one and two-story residences however the population is small and local shopping is limited to a corner store and gas station as well as McKenzie Creek Trading Company which is a gently used clothing and goods store. There is a small public-school located in Oakland but high school students are either bused to Waterford or Paris District High School.

The village is conveniently located just west of Highway 24 which allows easy access to Highway 403 east and west as well as Highway 24 which leads north to Paris and South to Simcoe.
