PONTIAC - Oakland County Parks and Recreation has waived entry fees for county parks until June 1, inviting residents and other guests to enjoy a walk in the park at no cost. The offer extends the one made in mid-March and encourages everyone to enjoy the splendor of the Oakland County day-use parks at no charge. The extension was announced jointly today by County Executive David Coulter, the county Board of Commissioners and the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission as a continuing response to COVID-19 pandemic.
“Visiting an Oakland County park is a good option any time of the year, allowing us to recharge mentally while enjoying the obvious benefits of fresh air and pristine natural areas," Coulter said. “There’s no question this pandemic has been a test for us all, and I’m grateful so many of our residents continue to practice social distancing and the things to keep themselves, their families and friends safe. This is making a difference.”
The Oakland County Parks system offers nearly 80 miles of trails and encompasses 7,000 acres. The parks system has trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking and equestrian riding. OCPR’s website oaklandcountyparks.com features detailed information about each location. The normal charge for the day-use park is $5/vehicle for county residents and $12/vehicle regular rate.
Coulter strongly recommended park visitors follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines to prevent the spread of infectious diseases including avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; cover mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze; and most importantly, staying home if you feel sick.
