Mission Statement

The West Bloomfield Parks and Recreation Commission, established by voter mandate in 1970, is committed to the residents of West Bloomfield.  Our mission is to meet the community's recreation, leisure and social needs by acquiring and enhancing public parkland and supporting year-round facilities and programs for youth, teens, adults, families and seniors.  Our goal is to enhance the quality of life in our community by providing facilities, programs and natural settings for the enjoyment of residents.


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.
