Annual Report 2022
In June of 1969, a committee was formed in order to explore recreation opportunities and open spaces available for acquisition within our community. Just a little over a year later in August of 1970, voters in West Bloomfield established a Township Parks Commission and agreed to support its start by passing a four year, ¼ millage which provided the funding needed to get the parks and recreation ball rolling. In November of that same year, The West Bloomfield Township Board authorized the Parks Commission to also act as the Township Recreation Board and the rest, as they say, is history. The West Bloomfield Parks and Recreation Commission has been in existence ever since.
Overseen by seven, publicly elected commissioners, and managed by a commission appointed Director, the West Bloomfield Parks and Recreation department oversees the maintenance and programming for 580 acres divided over 12 township parks.50th Birthday Commemorative Video:
