Located above the Dimond District and along Highway 13, this enclave isn’t as well-known, but quite desirable for families and individuals who are looking for quiet, as well as almost immediate access to outdoor activities. With Dimond Canyon park running along the northeast side of the neighborhood, it’s possible to walk out your door and right into redwood-dotted hiking trails. The Friends of Sausal Creek group is active in maintaining the creek that runs through the canyon, and frequently hosts activities.
As it was designed as a bedroom community from the outset, Oakmore doesn’t have a big business district. It’s not a burden on the residents, who have easy access to Dimond, Glenview, and Montclair for shopping and dining. For immediate needs, there is a small commercial area that hosts a market and some local businesses. Residents love their quiet neighborhood and its privacy in the hills.
