For a comprehensive reference for the places you need to know about, click on the Birmingham Bloomfield Lifestyle, an in-depth community resource guide serving the Birmingham Bloomfield community since 1966.

You may want to link to Oakland County Parks, the Bloomfield Hills Schools Recreation and Community Services Department and the Birmingham Public Schools Community Education Department. We are making these sites convenient for you in response to Bloomfield Township residents who, during the Master Plan Update process, expressed their desire for more community recreation opportunities.
