Oakland County Parks & Trails

Established in 1966, the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission (OCPRC) offers more than 65 miles of park trails and natural landscapes for year-round recreation within our 13 county parks. The county park system also provides a variety of other recreation opportunities, including five golf courses, Mobile Recreation, three dog parks, two waterparks, a nature center, a BMX track and the County Market.

OCPRC is committed to providing safe, clean, accessible facilities and services to the community. Charged with the management and stewardship of nearly 6,700 acres of public land, including some significant and rare natural areas, our goal is to protect and sustain these areas for future generations. The incorporation of energy-efficient and financially sustainable practices in all facets of parks operations and management is vital to the future of the parks system.

OCPRC is also an avid supporter of the Oak Routes County Trail Network vision. The emerging connections of trails, pathways, and blueways traverses much of the 910 square miles of the county, connecting neighborhoods to parks, schools, commercial districts and town centers.
