History of Royal Oak
Set within the southwestern portion of Clove Lakes Park at Royal Oak Avenue, the prominent town was established previous to the construction of the Verrazano Bridge, making an important link to the history of the island's existence before the bridge. The slower, peaceful pace of a bygone era continues to pervade the streets lined with old-growth trees, where the sounds of children playing in the park and birds chirping replace the noises of traffic prevalent in more busy, urban areas.
