Oak Hill Park is in East Barnet in the London Borough of Barnet. It is one of Barnet's premier parks and received a Green Flag Award for 2009-10. It is a large area of parkland with a wide range of facilities, including an outdooor gym, a bowls green, football pitches, a golf course, three tennis courts, a multi-sports court and a play area for toddlers.[1]

Oak Hill Woods dates back to at least the eleventh century, when it was owned by the church. After the dissolution of the monasteries it was sold in 1536-38 and remained in private ownership until it was bought by East Barnet Council in 1930. Oak Hill Park was established in 1933.[2]

Part of the park became Oak Hill Wood, a Local Nature Reserve in 1997. Pymme's Brook and Pymmes Brook Trail pass through the park.

There is access from Church Hill Road, Parkside Gardens, Daneland and Vernon Crescent.[2]
