Parks Commission

 ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission was established by Public Act 261 of 1965. Founded in 1966, the commission is the policymaking board that oversees the system’s 6,700 acres. Commissioners are tasked with allocating resources throughout 13 parks, and making decisions about purchasing park land, constructing facilities, preserving maintenance standards and developing innovative programs and services.

The Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission is dedicated to providing all residents quality recreation experiences that encourage healthy lifestyles, support economic prosperity, promote the protection of natural resources.

Oakland County Parks, programs, services and facilities are made possible by millage funds supported by Oakland County residents. For a home valued at $200,000, the homeowner pays less than $25/year to support Oakland County Parks and Recreation. 

The August 5 Commission Meeting will take place as a teleconference meeting.
