The Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission is proud of its leadership in preserving park land and creating recreational opportunities that improve the quality of life for all the residents of Oakland County, Michigan.

Since 1966, families have made life-long memories at the Oakland County Parks. Those experiences have become tradition, and many now share those memories with their children and grand-children. From pristine lakes and significant woodlands and wetlands to sprawling golf courses and active recreation opportunities, Oakland County Parks offers something for everyone.

The 6,700-acre Oakland County Parks system features 14 parks with nearly 80 miles of paved and natural trails. Activities range from hiking, mountain biking, equestrian riding, swimming and camping to year-round regional events and nature study. The parks system includes five golf courses, three dog parks, two nature centers, two waterparks, a bicycle motocross track, disc golf course, an ORV park and more.
