Red Oaks

Visitors traveling to Red Oaks Golf Course, Waterpark, Nature Center and Youth Soccer Complex may experience construction delays this summer. The repaving of John R from 11 Mile to Dartmouth, north of 12 Mile, begins at the end of April 2013 and should be completed by early August 2013 (weather permitting). Side streets will be closed alternately at John R for periods of construction, but alternative access to neighborhoods will be maintained. PHASE I will include the northbound lanes. PHASE II will include the southbound lanes. 

ACTION is the name of the game at Red Oaks County Park! At this 163-acre park built on the Red Run Drain, golfers, splashers, dog lovers and sports enthusiasts will find clean, safe facilities and opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.

Red Oaks Dog Park is now open! It features 5.2-acres of fenced enclosures for dogs to romp off-leash.  The dog park is located around the corner from the waterpark, with access from Dequindre Road.

Red Oaks Golf Course is a Jerry Mathews-designed 9-hole executive course. The golf course is on John R Road, just north of 12 Mile Road.

Red Oaks Nature Center is located across 13 Mile Road from the Red Oaks Waterpark entrance.

The Red Oaks Youth Soccer Complex is located across the street from the golf course.  It features soccer fields, concession building with restrooms and meeting space, and a playground.

Red Oaks Waterpark offers a wave-action pool, waterslide, river ride and children's water playground.
