If you love trees, hills, winding roads and lakes,
Groveland Township might Seem like the perfect
location. Nestled in the north end of Oakland County,
Groveland Township has long been home to residents
who place high value on the rural county life style.
established in 1838, the community has maintained its
original value, while providing its residents convenient
commutes to jobs in Oakland and Genesee counties.
The natural beauty of this area is preserved by the
large amount of state-owned property, as well as a
number of private camps and both state and county
beaches. Ills the desire of our residents and officials to
protect this uniquely beautiful environment. The best
way to do this has been to establish strong land utilization
restrictions, which allow quality development in an
organized manner, as well as a Master Plan that focuses
on a community of large parcel, low density, single family
Year-round recreational opportunities abound in
Groveland. The Holly Recreation Area and Groveland
Oaks County Park provide areas for camping,
swimming, fishing, and hiking. The Michigan
Renaissance Festival brings a unique style of
entertainment to the area for six weekends from mid-
August through September.
Each autumn, Oak Haven Farm holds its Harvest
Days, which include hayrides, pumpkin picking, cider,
donuts and fun. During the winter, you can choose
between downhill skiing at Mt. Holly, or cross-country
skiing on those same hills you hiked during spring,
summer and fall.
Because of our geographical location between the
towns of Ortonville and Holly, Groveland Township
supports the businesses and community services in both
communities. Senior centers, civic organizations,
libraries, school districts, and recreational facilities in
both communities are open to Groveland residents.
We have expanded our Township Hall. Organized
office space, additional storage space, a larger meeting
area and better handicap accessibility will allow us to
serve our residents more efficiently. This building project
is the result of many years of budgeting and saving,
which has eliminated the need to borrow money or ask for an
increase in taxes.
Friendly personal service is the main objective of the
Township Office. Because our staff is small, and we have all
held our positions for many years, it is easy
for us to get to know our residents person-
ally and try to serve them fairly, quickly,
and to the best of our ability. We try to answer any
questions and concerns that our residents may have about living
in Groveland.

This residential community of caring citizens is best
exemplified by our township motto, adopted in 1996

“People and Nature Living Together in Harmony”.
