Lyon Oaks County Park Professional Review and Guide
"Its size and noble bearing make the great blue heron a favorite among birders (and non-birders) here in Michigan. Lyon Oaks County Park features a heron rookery, which gives you the chance to see these birds in their nesting habitat. The long loop trail includes a walk around a wetland-creation project, a mixed hardwood forest, and transition wetlands.
This is the first of the Oakland county parks featured in this guide. The county parks all have the word “Oaks” in their name: Independence Oaks, Groveland Oaks, Addison Oaks, etc. Lyon Oaks is not the largest of the group, but at 1,204 acres (800 of which are wetlands) it’s certainly not small. The park features an eighteen-hole golf course, its main attraction, as well as picnic areas and a nice dog park."
