Oakcrest is predominately a residential neighborhood, made up of several hundred single-family home sites. However, a few commercial offerings can also be found within bounds, especially along the highways. Many shopping, dining, and entertainment options exist just outside of neighborhood bounds, including a fitness center, Wal-Mart Supercenter, and many popular eateries.
Oakcrest Park, the community’s namesake, spans just one block on the northeast side of the neighborhood. This small park doesn’t offer a great many amenities, but it does provide some playground equipment, a short walking path, and enough open green space for a game of ball or a family picnic.
The homes in this community are rather modest but well kept, and the lots are an average size for the area. Plenty of shade trees can be found throughout the community, providing some privacy and shade from the sun. A few lots offer backyard swimming pools.
The heart of the downtown area is accessible less than ten minutes to the southeast, and major shopping centers like the Cordova Mall are situated within a few miles of home. Residents enjoy proximity to the city’s regional airport and several major medical centers as well. This community is also convenient to several public golf courses and many top-notch public and private schools.
