Five Oaks is a near-northwest neighborhood nestled between Salem Avenue, North Main Street, Grand Avenue, and Delaware Avenue.
This neighborhood is an excellent example of early 1900’s American Prairie architecture, with most houses in the American Foursquare style. Lot sizes are relatively large and often feature a detached garage with alley access.
This neighborhood is within walking distance to great community amenities including Gem City Market and the Dayton Art Institute. Residents can also enjoy a short walk or drive to Five Oaks Park on the east end of this neighborhood.
Five Oaks is a largely residential neighborhood bordered by two major thoroughfares. This gives the neighborhood a quiet feel with easy connectivity to downtown and local businesses.
Brick streets add to the charm and character of this neighborhood. Grandview Medical Center is an anchor on the southeast side of Five Oaks, providing employment and access to medical resources.
