Dog Parks

Upon the direction and recommendation of the Oakland County Health Officer, in response to the March 23, 2020 order by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state, the three dog parks operated by Oakland County Parks and Recreation are effectively closed until further notice.

Due to the nature of the dog parks, residents are unable to maintain a safe social distance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The locations include Lyon Oaks Dog Park in Lyon Township, Orion Oaks Dog Park in Orion Township and Red Oaks Dog Park in Madison Heights.

Residents are encouraged to visit OCPR's day-use parks trails. Dogs must be walked on a six-foot leash at all times. Please pick up your pet's waste droppings.

We thank our pet owners for helping to slow the spread of COVID-19.
