52 acres purchased in 2004, and 5.88 acres added in  2008; Lost Lake Nature Park was the third park to be acquired using Land Preservation millage funds.  Picnic near the 8-acre lake where dock-fishing is allowed (with a current fishing license) and enjoy the scenery.  Wood ducks, herons, turkey and deer are just a small sampling of the wildlife you may see at this park.  Trail hiking is limited, but if you’re up for a challenge, walk up the sledding hill to one of Oakland Township’s highest points ~ great dragonfly watching in the warmer months!
