OAKLAND COUNTY MEMORIAL DAY PARADES

NOTE – The normal opening day weekend for Oakland County Waterparks (RED OAKS WATERPARK) is Memorial Day Weekend. However, this year opening day will begin June 9, 2018. Oakland County Parks website cites low early season attendance, local school schedules, and the difficulty in hiring & training lifeguards as the reason for the delay.
