"Diminutive Rocky Oaks Park is typical of the many small properties that have been purchased or earmarked for future acquisition by the National Park Service in the continuing effort to flesh out the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The property, a former cattle ranch, was purchased in 1980."

"Until the late 1970s, Rocky Oaks Park was a working cattle ranch. The grassland (pasture) and pond (for cattle) are remnants of that era. Rocky Oaks, acquired by the National Park Service in 1981, is one of those little places perfect for a picnic or a little leg-stretcher of a hike."
