We absolutely love living in Oakley. The people are amazingly friendly and everyone is willing to help each other out. There is a good mix of people who have lived in their homes for 20+ years and young professionals and families that are new to the neighborhood. Some great restaurants and bars, as well as some nice boutique style shops, all of which are walkable from most parts of Oakley. The only down side are the schools. After elementary school you must test into Walnut Hills or pay for private school. Overall we love it here and would stay if we didn't mind paying for private school.

Oakley is a great part of Cincinnati for younger professionals and young families. Madtree opened it's new brewery, and there are some great smaller bars/restaurant. The new Kroger has anything you could possibly want to buy but there is also a Fresh Market, Fresh Thyme and Meijer if Kroger doesn't have what you need. The sidewalks are great for running and the people are friendly.
Very nice quiet area, their are a lot of businesses within walking distance. Very clean, upcoming area.
