Royal Oak City Parks
Royal Oak is proud of its 50 scenic parks, including two that are natural pristine reserves (Cummingston Park and Tehave Woods in Quickstad Park). Aggregately, they provide over 310 acres of natural woodlands and support a variety of interests. Some nestled in quiet neighborhoods focus on solace and retreat. Some have playscape equipment for children. Others provide tennis courts, frisbee golf, or play fields for organized team sporting events. Memorial Park, located at Woodward Avenue and Thirteen Mile Road, features three lighted ball diamonds and concession services.
Recreation and Sports
Assorted activities are available to Royal Oak youth, adults, and families through school, recreation, and organization facilities. Sports-minded youth can play in a number of athletic leagues, including hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, and girls’ softball.
Leagues and Instruction
Adult leagues provide play in basketball, touch football, softball, and sand volleyball. Swim instruction and open swimming are available to all ages through the school district facilities. Children and adults can participate in instructional programs for dance, golf, tennis, badminton, tai chi, general fitness, and other activities. The city’s John Lindell Ice Arena houses two indoor ice rinks for hockey leagues, year-round open skating, and instructional classes for figure, hockey, and speed skating.
