Pontiac, MI - The Oakland Together COVID-19 Tribute Walk will open to the public on Saturday evening at Waterford Oaks County Park, two days sooner than expected.
Individuals can pre-register for $5 tickets at www.oakgov.com/COVID/tribute.
Oakland County and Oakland County Parks and Recreation are commemorating one year since the first confirmed COVID-19 case with the Tribute Walk. Bluewater Technologies, known for its Glenlore Trails in Commerce Twp., has designed a half-mile long immersive and interactive light trail for visitors to reflect on the impact of the pandemic, remember those who have lost their lives to coronavirus, and give thanks to the frontline workers who continue to risk their lives to keep us healthy and safe, and express gratitude for all of those who have helped us through the last year.
The journey through the illuminated half-mile wooded path starts behind Lookout Lodge at Waterford Oaks County Park, located at 1702 Scott Lake Rd. in Waterford Township. The Tribute Walk will be open evenings through Sunday, March 21.
