The Oval Maidan in South Mumbai (Bombay) is a big ground which is now used for recreation activities. This ground got its name because it is oval in shape. People usually use this place as a sports ground for playing cricket and football. It has a total area of 22 acres.

Earlier this ground was possessed by anti-social elements and it was very poorly kept by the concerned officials of Maharashtra Government. But after 1997, Oval Cooperage Residents Association (OCRA), a charitable trust organized by the nearby residents, took the initiative to develop this ground. Finally after some legal procedures, the ownership of the ground was obtained by OCRA.
