About the Park
With an outstanding number of recreation opportunities, Oak Park is a lively and welcoming place. It also offers many winding paths throughout the park, picnic areas, and some wonderful trees. The spraypark is a big attraction for children in hot weather.

The park's two tennis courts were named after acclaimed Vancouver tennis player Lorne Main, in recognition of his many athletic successes.
History
Originally owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) this site was purchased by the Point Grey Municipality and known as Athletic Park until Vancouver’s amalgamation in 1929. On December 11, 1930, the park was renamed Oak Park after one of its bounding streets. The park was enlarged through another park purchase on November 18, 1944.
