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.
