The Old Oyo Park gets it's name from the ruins of Old Oyo empire. It is a now a national park. The Old Oyo empire was the ancient political capital of the Yoruba empire. The park is made up of two previous native administrative forest reserves; the Upper Ogun and Oyo-Ile forest reserves. They were converted into a game resereve in 1952 and finally upgraded to the present status of national park.

The park has a land mass of about 2, 512 square kilometer and is located in Northern Oyo. The position gives the park a vantage position of abundant land area as well as diverse wildlife, cultural and historic settings.
