Planning for the Future
With the Gallagher Creek Park Path nearing completion in 2018 and improvements to the paths around Oakland Christian Church at the SW corner of Adams and Silverbell well underway, the SPTC is now in the planning stages of a path along Gallagher Road that would connect the existing path system on Silverbell Road and beyond to the Paint Creek Trail. Your Safety Paths and Trails Committee is actively pursuing additional connections throughout Oakland Township. This includes (but not limited to) non-motorized routes along Rochester and Adams Roads and to Marsh View Park and Stoney Creek Metro Park. SPTC has been working for several years with the DNR, Oakland County Planning Department, and Orion Township for a connection through Bald Mountain Recreation Area from Kern Road east to the Paint Creek Trail. This would afford opportunities to link the south end of Oakland Township to Lake Orion, Bald Mountain North, Marshview Park, Addison Oaks and Cranberry Lake Park.
