Redford Township is a dynamic community of 48,362 people located on about 11.25 square miles on the western border of Michigan's largest city, Detroit. Many Redford Citizens are second or third generation residents. After growing up in the Township, they want their kids to grow up here too. These citizens often say they want to give back to the community that gave them so much. This explains the high rate of citizen involvement in local government and the success of many neighborhood civic and church groups. New, younger families are attracted to Redford's central location, a short drive from anywhere in the region. We have a wide mix of people of all ages, races, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Redford Township reflects the face of America.
Redford is home to 15 different parks, which are one of Redford's most valuable resources. Our residents can enjoy a splash park, ball diamonds, tot lots, walking paths and more. Redford parks have something for everyone.
Residents come together throughout the year to enjoy such events as the Summer Festival & Fireworks, Daddy Daughter & Mommy Son Dances, Farmers Market at the Marquee, Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Prayer Breakfast, Beautification Commission Perennial Exchanges, Memorial Day Parade, Concerts in the Park, Oktoberfest, and Olde Fashioned Holidays.
