The author, Gil Oakes, was a member of Park Beach SLSC from 1961, when he was 18 years old, until 1974. He saw Park Beach Surf Life Saving Club develop from having no clubhouse and hiding its patrol equipment behind the large rock at the entrance to the clubhouse grounds until it became a well developed club with facilities adequate for the era. He was an active member and competitor and held executive positions during those years.
Writing this history in 2015 he describes the club's fortunes from its beginnings in 1959 until the amalgamation with Hobart Carlton SLSC and the formation of the Carlton Park SLSC on the 2nd April 1975.
