Offers a 24-acre fenced enclosure with small dog area, including two trails, picnic shelter,

Orion Oaks Dog Park includes three separate sections (A, B, C), which are rotated on a

may change the open area at any time, due to turf conditions. Call 248-625-0877 for current
information. The Orion Oaks Dog Park entrance is on Joslyn Road, between Clarkston and Scripps Roads.

This 5.2-acre site accessible from Dequindre Road offers up to four fenced enclosures including
one for smaller dogs. Pet-lover amenities also include a pets-only drinking water source, picnic
shelter, pet waste stations and a paved parking lot. 

Dog park areas are rotated seasonally to maintain optimal turf conditions.

  • Picnic tables and benches
  • Pet waste bags

Information on dogs and snake bites

Other Oakland County Parks Welcome Dogs Too!
Canines are welcome on-leash at Addison Oaks, Catalpa Oaks, Groveland Oaks, Highland Oaks,
Independence Oaks, Lyon Oaks, Orion Oaks, Rose Oaks and Waterford Oaks.

Dogs visiting Oakland County Parks are required to be on a six-foot-long leash unless inside a
Dog Park enclosure. Keeping your pet on leash and on designated park trails in natural areas
helps prevent erosion and destruction of trailside vegetation. Wildlife may not survive an
encounter with an unleashed dog; a dog may innocently destroy the homes of ground-nesting
animals and may maim or kill wildlife.
