Oak Park Mini Golf
Oak Park Putt-Putt Golf (14300 Oak Park Blvd, Oak Park, MI 48237, 248-691-7555, oakparkmi.gov)
The City of Oak Park Department of Recreation has its own mini golf course. I wish other Oakland County cities had recreation departments with mini golf! It’s located right at the Oak Park Municipal Pool building. The small (but fun) course is open June-August, 7 days per week (mostly from early afternoons (1p-2p) through early evenings (6p-8p) depending on the day of the week. NOTE – The pool and course were closed during the 2020 during covid and remains TBD for the 2021 season.
