History

The area covered by the park was once part of Pinkneys Green Farm Estate which was sold for housing in the 1920's. The Borough of Maidenhead purchased the land in 1935 for use as a public open space. The Park is thought to be named after a grove of oak trees situated on the Farm Estate.

Between 1938 and 1939 the land was laid out as public open space and a sports pavilion, tennis courts and a bowling green and clubhouse were constructed. Maidenhead Town Bowling Club has used the green and club house since 1939.
