Oak Creek

The historic oak trees that line a portion of Sand Canyon Avenue are reminders of the timelessness of the village of Oak Creek. This community features a broad array of homes located in the center of Irvine, between the village of Woodbridge and Irvine Spectrum.

The Jeffrey Open Space Trail, which spans the village’s western border, provides residents with a shady, picturesque place to walk, jog, push a stroller or ride a bike. Eucalyptus trees planted more than half a century ago line the Jeffrey Trail, which will eventually connect one end of the city with the other as it travels along the east side of Jeffrey Road.

Many residents of the village are within walking distance of the wide array of stores and restaurants at Oak Creek Village Center at Alton Parkway and Jeffrey Road. In addition to Oak Creek’s natural landmarks, stone entryways help define the village’s distinct character.
