any bad areas in oakville?

I'm just wondering if there are any bad neighbourhoods in Oakville. I have heard that it is a really safe place, but recently someone told me that central oakville or kerr street is considered the "oakville ghetto". Ive been around there and it seemed pretty nice to me so I wasnt sure if it was true or not!

Despite my id here, I live in Oakville part of the year.

Kerr Street is still where a lot of fixed income people live, but it's not unsafe. And there's a lot of construction of new townhouses, etc.

Oakville's a great place to live. There are a lot of great restaurants on Kerr, too.

I lived on lakeshore in old oakville and I also lived just off Kerr. There are really no bad areas in Oakville at all. Kerr is just not as good as some other areas in safety. Every town has a mix of people in it. There are some great things on Kerr.

I really love Stoney's Bread Company, it has the BEST steak sandwich! Plus the downtown area is such a short walk and you don't have to worry about blaring music in your window when there is a festival going on - (they do live music sometimes.)

There is a YMCA just about 5 minutes drive from Kerr and a couple grocery stores too. I also love Red Chilli the thai (i think) food place on kerr. Tons of great stuff in the area and Kerr Street has it's own uniqe vibe too.
