Parks Plans

The purpose of the park planning process is to ensure that operational and facility improvements are designed to meet the recreational needs of Oakland County residents and are welcoming to people of all abilities, ages, and cultures. The primary focus is on the long-term stability, management, and programming of existing assets and facilities, with a secondary focus on the development of new assets and facilities.  Park plans consist of three documents that are updated annually: Park Planning Process Executive Summary, which outlines the overall objectives for all parks; the Baseline Park Analysis; and the Park Vision and Facility Concepts. These documents are received and filed by the Parks Commission and are incorporated into the Recreation Plan 2018-2022.  Contact Donna Folland, Senior Planner, at 248-736-9087 or for more information about individual park plans.
