Welcome to
Oakland Township Parks and Recreation
OAKLAND TOWNSHIP PARKS AND RECREATION RESPONSE TO COVID-19 (August 3, 2020)
Oakland Township Residents and Friends:

This fall we are offering, by registration only, lower-risk outdoor activities including nature, archery, yoga, tai chi, and kayaking classes. Our team of staff and instructors are trained in safety protocol that follow CDC Guidelines, are equipped with Personal Protective Equipment and have increased the frequency of facility and equipment cleaning. We will also continue to offer virtual classes and videos through our website (www.oaklandtownship.org) and our Facebook link (facebook.com/otpARKS).

ALL Oakland Township PARKS, TRAILS, PLAYGROUNDS, BASKETBALL COURTS, FISHING/ KAYAK DOCKS, PICNIC PAVILIONS AND PORTABLE RESTROOMS are OPEN for use by the public.

The Parks and Recreation offices are now OPEN to the public between 9am and 3pm, Monday through Friday. Visitors who wish to do business in-person are required to wear a mask and complete our COVID-19 self-screening procedure before entering the office area. Social distancing policies continue to apply.
Please continue to stay healthy and enjoy Oakland Township parks, recreation facilities and programs as you follow these guidelines:
  • • Do not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms.
  • • Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to visiting parks or trails.
  • • Observe the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6’ from other persons.
  • • Carry masks in case you encounter others in close proximity. The recent Executive Order 153 requires the use of face coverings in crowded outdoor spaces when proper social distancing – at least 6 feet when around people who are not part of your household – cannot be maintained.
  • • Families are welcome to play in the parks and use trails, but please do not engage in sports/activities that require shared contact.
  • • Public gatherings of more than 100 people are prohibited.

Oakland Township Parks and Recreation (OTPR) continues to monitor for changes in guidance and mandates about COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Governor’s Executive Orders and Oakland County Health Orders. OTPR has made operational changes that are in the best interest of the health and safety of the public and our employees to limit the spread of COVID19. These best practices and all COVID-19 updates are available on the Parks and Recreation pages at www.oaklandtownship.org
