Oakland County Parks and the Michigan Department of Natural resources are moving forward on a new ORV park in southeastern Michigan set to open in the summer of 2020.
An important part of the planning process includes naming the new park and the departments want the public’s help.
In 2017, the DNR purchased 235 acres in preparation for the park, with the help of a $2.9 million grant from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund.
About 113 acres of the park are expected to be open next summer for all types of ORVs, including full-size vehicles, side-by-sides, all-terrain vehicles, ATVs and motorcycles.
The full 235 acres is expected to be open by 2023 when mining is completed on the remaining property.
