West Bloomfield's rolling hills provide a tranquil setting for beautiful and lavish homes. Development pressures and vanishing farmland foster sensitivity to environmental quality and preservation of natural resources, contributing to the overall character of the Township.

West Bloomfield Parks and Recreation boasts over 500 acres in park land and offers residents recreational activities throughout the year with more than 250 programs, which are administered by the West Bloomfield Parks and Recreation Commission. While West Bloomfield does not have a designated downtown area, it does offer a variety of shops and restaurants on Orchard Lake Road and Haggerty Road. In addition, West Bloomfield has a thriving business community offering a variety of professional services.

With all that West Bloomfield has to offer, no wonder it was ranked 14 in Money Magazine’s Top 100 Best Places to Live for 2006.

The West Bloomfield Trail is a Rails-to-Trails Project. This 28 acre linear park meanders for nearly 7 miles from Haggerty Road to Sylvan Manor Park, through West Bloomfield, Orchard Lake, Keego Harbor and Sylvan Lake. Where trains once rolled, you may now walk, cross-country ski or bicycle amidst wildflowers, wetlands, woodlands, commercial districts and residential communities.
