Parks and Recreation Commission

The Parks and Recreation Commission is the recommending body for policy decisions on Garfield Township's parks and recreation system.

Some specific duties of the Parks and Recreation Commission include:

  • Develop and maintain the 5-Year Parks and Recreation Master Plan
  • Develop park-specific management plans
  • Develop informational pamphlets about the parks system and encourage public involvement and stewardship
  • Work in partnership with other stakeholders, including the Grand Traverse Conservation District, Regional Land Conservancy, and County Park Department.

The Parks and Recreation Commission meets 4 times per year and otherwise as needed; however will be meeting each month for the remainder of 2017.  All meetings are open to the public, and any interested person is welcome to attend and be heard. We'd love to hear your suggestions on how to make our already wonderful park system even better!

The Garfield Township Parks and Recreation Commission will hold their next regular meeting on Monday August 7, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in the Garfield Township Hall meeting room.
