Malverne Park Oaks is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County, on Long Island, in New York, United States. The population was 538 at the 2020 census.[2]



The CDP was first created for the 2000 census.[3]

While designated as one area, it is actually made up of three different, smaller communities: Malverne Park, Malverne Oaks South, and Malverne Oaks North.[4]

When the Incorporated Village of Malverne was seeking to become an incorporated village in 1920, the residents from this area did not wish to become part of the new village and therefore remained a hamlet under the Town of Hempstead.[4]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 0.1 square miles (0.26 km2), all land.[5]

The Malverne Park section of the hamlet is more closely associated with the Village of Malverne as it falls within its fire and school districts as well as the Malverne ZIP code (11565).

The Malverne Oaks North and South sections of the hamlet, meanwhile, are linked more with West Hempstead for similar districting reasons and due to using a West Hempstead ZIP code (11552).
