A Tree City Worthy of

Royal Oak got its name in 1819 after an English surveyor spotted a tree in southeast Michigan bearing a striking resemblance to the royal oak tree where King Charles II took cover while fleeing Oliver Cromwell's army. Today, the site of the town's namesake tree lies just off Main Street. That one royal oak that concealed the King centuries ago in England has since helped bring shade to Michigan. City officials acquired acorns from English trees traced back to that royal oak and planted them in the Detroit Zoo in the 1930s. Many of those trees have been moved to Memorial Park.

Life in Royal Oak

While most of Royal Oak is residential, the city also boasts a distinct and growing downtown community famed for its entertainment and nightlife. A highlight of that nightlife is Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle, where a young Tim Allen got his start. It is also considered a film-friendly town and scenes in Tim Allen's popular ‘90s sitcom Home Improvement were filmed there, as were parts of major motion pictures Gran Torino and Red Dawn. Residents of Royal Oak can take in their own motion pictures at a host of movie theaters, including Cinemark and AMC multiplexes.
