The Skate Park is a major attraction located near the center of the park. The large skate park is grafitti-free, clean, and the concrete is almost completely smooth.
Drake also boasts a 14′ wide pave trail is nearly a mile long and features Fit-Trac exercise stations. The Fit-Trac stations are modern, updated versions of those fitness stations that used to dot MetroParks in the 70s and 80s. These stops encourage sit-ups, leg-lifts, and other exercises you can incorporate into your fitness walks. The fitness trail outlines the perimeter of the park and is very scenic. For a sports complex, the park also manages to fit in plenty of nature and leisure opportunities.
There are 2 playgrounds next to the picnic shelter / pavilion. Neither are anything to write home about but they are both clean and well-maintained. The picnic shelter / pavilion is available to rent and so is the park’s meeting room. Facility rental for the shelter and fields is available by calling 248-451-1900.
West Bloomfield Parks crams an incredible number of amenities in the 52-acre space park and uses the land (and parking) wisely. All features of the park are well-within the convenient parking lot. The park and its niceties are impeccably maintained.
