Oakden is a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia,[2] located to the north-east of the Central Business District. It was established as a housing estate named Regent Gardens in the 1980s and is located on former Department of Agriculture land.

It was then renamed 'Oakden' in 1993 after the maiden name of the wife of [1] Her nephew was the South Australian explorer and pastoralist John Oakden.

It is home to Roy Amer Reserve[4] and wetlands that serves as a storm water capture and aquifer recharge system as well as a native fish sanctuary.

In May 2010, a property in Oakden was one focus for a police raid on the Agape Ministries of God, which was described as a cult.[5]
