As another Oxford resident, I'd love to be able to drive my CJ up there for a day of fun, we'd visit several times a year. Would be purchasing an annual pass.

If there was a pavillion or picnic area, I suspect we would have some of our club meetings there, with wheeling before & after.

I think they should build the park on the west side of the state. That's just me.

maybe even an evening run now and then if they would be open till dark like the Mounds and Silver Lake.

I think it'd be awesome to open up another park.

Why would Oakland County Parks and Rec want to open a park on the west side of the state?

This would be about the same distance as the Mounds for me. But I like the bigger area and I know there are bigger hills.

Plus, you can't beat diversity.

I live in Metro Detroit and this would be the closest park to my house. I can't wait for it to be open.

Lets hope not.
Unless there is seperate picnic areas.
We don't need to mix drinking with Offroading.

Just fitting the stereotype

The park sounds like an awesome idea.
