The Oxmoor neighborhood (known as the Sand Ridge neighborhood until 2006) is a neighborhood in Birmingham's Southwest community. The large, sparsely-populated area borders Homewood, Hoover, Bessemer and Lipscomb on the southwestern edge of the city limits, south of Red Mountain. It is traversed by Lakeshore Parkway, Shannon-Wenonah Road (Venice Road), Wenonah-Oxmoor Road (Sydney Drive), and Shannon-Oxmoor Road. North of the ridge of Red Mountain, Oxmoor is bounded by the Powderly, Mason City and Garden Highlands neighborhoods of the Southwest community, and by the West Goldwire and Tarpley City neighborhoods of the Grasselli community. It is divided by the administrative border between the Birmingham Division and Bessemer Cut Off of Jefferson County

The Oxmoor neighborhood includes the historic community of Pleasant Valley. It is the site of Red Mountain Park, the West Oxmoor Industrial Park, the Oxmoor Corporate Park, and the Oxmoor Valley Golf Course. A few newer residential subdivisions, including Waterford Falls, Camden Place, and Ridgeview Estates have been developed in the valley.

Julius Oliver is the neighborhood president, having succeeded Leona Payne. The Oxmoor Neighborhood Association meets at 6:30pm on the second Monday of each month at the Oxmoor Community Center on Wenonah-Oxmoor Road. The entire neighborhood is in Birmingham City Council District 7. Schools serving the neighborhood include Oxmoor Elementary School, Jackson Elementary School, Wenonah Elementary School, Jones Valley Middle School, Center Street Middle School and Wenonah High School.
