Oakland, arguably one of St. Louis County’s best-kept secrets, is a small fourth class city of approximately 1550 residents. Its 7.5 miles of tree-lined streets are nestled between Webster Groves to its east, Crestwood to its south, Kirkwood to its west, and Glendale to its north.

Oakland is a community of great architectural diversity. Not only will you find homes designed by such modern day architects as Harris Armstrong, Robert Schutt and Paul Marti (all of whom are former Oakland residents) but also turn of the century houses and arts and crafts-styled cottages. Oakland has a fascinating history, explored in the book Oakland: A History of the People &Their Homes and summarized here.

Oakland is primarily a residential community, but within its city limits you will find Westborough Country Club, Ursuline Academy, a private girls’ high school, Bethesda Dilworth, one of the largest long term care facilities in Missouri, Webster Groves Christian Church and Oak Bend Library, a branch of St. Louis County Library.  It is also home to Pedego St. Louis, an Oakland family-owned electric bicycle business located next to Grant’s Trail.

You will also find three city parks. Loewnau Park is located on the corner of Sappington Road and Oakland and is named for Adolph Loewenau, Oakland’s former longtime city clerk. Backstoppers Park of Oakland is located at the trailhead of Grant’s Trail, part of the Gravois Greenway and is named for the non-profit organization that supports families of fallen first responders.  Minturn Park, centered on Gravois Creek in the north end of town, features the oft-photographed Paul and Audie Marti bridge. City parks provide wonderful green spaces within our community.
