Oakland County to Invest in David Shepherd Park

Our David Shepherd Park is one of a select group of area parks that is receiving grant funding from Oakland County to improve parks and recreation facilities. This partnership, this investment will allow us to invest in walking paths, gathering spaces, restrooms, natural resource restoration and more!

“This investment from Oakland County comes at a time when we are working to elevate our public spaces in Oak Park,” City Manager Erik Tungate said. “This partnership will allow us to take our recreation opportunities to new heights while still maintaining the history of David Shepherd Park."

Parks & Recreation Master Plan Open for Public Comment

The draft Elevate Oak Park Plan, which is also the Five Year Parks and Recreation Master Plan is now available for review and public input. This plan also includes a recreation assessment and asset management study. The public comment period is open for 30 days and you can provide your comments by taking our survey. Comments can be sent to Deputy City Manager of Community Services Crystal VanVleck at or Recreation Director Laurie Stasiak at

Elevate Oak Park is based on a planning process that involved input from the community, stakeholders, and staff, building upon the needs, concerns and wishes of these groups. The Plan contains key findings and information gathered from the recently completed community needs survey, public meetings, demographic analysis, current, historic and future information and trends, and a comprehensive inventory and analysis of existing parks, facilities, recreation programs, and maintenance operations. This Plan serves as a tool to guide the Recreation Department over the next five years, to better serve the community and provide quality parks, facilities and programs.
