Status of Waterford Oaks Waterpark

Waterford Oaks Waterpark will not open for the 2021 season.

Oakland County Parks and Recreation was not able to hire enough lifeguards to staff the facility located in Waterford.

"We appreciate the patience of our dedicated staff who have been working since January to recruit and hire staff for all our facilities," Interim Executive Officer Susan Wells said. "Unfortunately, lifeguard recruiting has been an issue the last few years in the county, state and nation. OCPR will not operate a facility if we are unable to provide the adequate safety level for our guests and staff."
