Catalpa Oaks County Park Southfield

Catalpa Oaks Park was renovated in 2013. The 2013 renovation added a new playground, concession stand, new restrooms, a modern pavilion and additional parking spaces. The soccer fields, baseball diamond, and softball field were all completely restored during the process.

The new playground at Catalpa Oaks has two areas – one for under five, and one for 5-12 year olds. The playscape is modern with lime green colors and new, fun activities. The playground has been open a couple of months and has already proven to be a huge attraction for local families and children. The concession and restrooms are located in a building right next to the playground.

(NOTE – A number of these pics feature ziplines and bouncers. This was taken at an OC Parks “Come Out and Play Event” – Ziplines, bouncers are not regular park features and only at OC Parks and Recreation events).

Oakland County Parks and Recreation features many events and special activities. The most popular of these events is the world-famous Great Marshmallow Drop event each Good Friday which features thousands of marshmallows dropped out of a helicopter for kids to collect. The wide-open spaces, densely populated neighborhoods in Southfield, and ease of travel through the major roads to get to Catalpa make the park ideal for the largest of OC Parks and Recs’ events.
