Swimming Under the Oakland County Sun

Oakland County is home to a huge variety of perfect swimming spots where we can cool off during the hot summer weather. Plenty of parks lay lakeside and house beautiful beaches, such as Groveland Oaks County Park in Holly or Independence Oaks County Park in Clarkston. If you prefer pools, you can find a pool at Civic Center Park in Southfield or the Red Oaks Waterpark in Madison Heights. If you do like the sand, and are looking for adventure, you can find splash pads and water obstacles at the WhoaZone at Heron Beach in Holly or the Indian Springs Metropark in White Lake.
