Oak Park is located at the northern end of Lake Walyormouring that is the main feature of the 149 Ha Oak Park Reserve.

The closest towns are Goomalling to the south and Wongan Hills to the north.

A walk trail comprising of 2 loops winds through the reserve for 3 kilometres. You will find a series of signs along the trail detailing information about the area and its importance to the local Aborigines.

Camping is currently allowed at the picnic site and at the time of writing, no fees are charged.

Facilities at the campsite include bins, toilets, shelter, seats, tables and a rather old wood fired BBQ.

The picnic area is also the site of the Walyormouring school that operated from 1912 - 1921.

A community hall was constructed in 1914 but sadly not trace of the hall remains today.

Oak Park is named for the swamp she-oaks or casuarina trees that are found there. These tress have a high tolerance to saline soils and are distributed widely through out the south west.

235 native plant species are found in the reserve including 5 that are classified as threatened. There are also a number of waterbird species and animals such as kangaroos and echidna in the park.
