VFW Park in Royal Oak

VFW Park is located on the west side of Campbell Road, just north of Lincoln (10 1/2 Mile) in Royal Oak.  This park has one large play structure with many slides, a bridge and other fun features.

This park also has infant/toddler swings along with regular sized swings available.  Pavilions with plenty of picnic tables makes this a great park for a picnic.  Restrooms and drinking fountains are available in the community center which is right across the street.  

Overall this park was rather clean.  It was very soggy due to the recent rains, but the play areas were all pretty dry.  Two benches are situated near the playground so parents can relax while watching their children play.  

One big drawback to this park is it's proximity to Campbell.  There is no barrier between the park and busy road, although the structure is a good distance away.  If your child is prone to bolting away, you will need to be very vigilant if you visit this park.

  1. VFW is our go to park and I will say the proximity to Campbell has never been a problem. I have a runner and he stays by the play structure.

    One nice thing is the community center has a restroom located outside for park goers to use. There are lots of trees to provide shade for picnics.

    Thanks for sharing all these great parks.
