Welcome

Nestled in southwest Wayne County along the banks of the scenic Huron River lays the beautiful Township of Huron. With 3 distinct villages of New Boston, Waltz and Willow, Huron Township offers a tranquil safe environment to raise a family or locate a business.

Home to Lower Huron, Willow and Oakwoods Metroparks, Huron Township boasts numerous miles of linked bike paths and kayaking courses as well as a multitude of other recreational opportunities including fishing, golf, and a family aquatic center.

The October Applefest featuring locally grown produce is just one of the many community events that brings families together during the year.

Conveniently located just minutes from Detroit Metro International Airport with major freeways and rail ways, Huron Township is a prime business development venue and is home to such leading automotive suppliers as Inergy and Brose.

We encourage our residents and visitors to experience our unique quality of life.

Sincerely,

David A. Glaab

Huron Township Supervisor

The AZA also recognized the DZS with the International Conservation Award for its work rescuing orphaned Grauer’s gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo. With an annual regional economic impact of more than $100 million, the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak is one of Michigan’s largest paid family attractions, hosting more than 1.6 million visitors annually. Its 125 acres of award-winning naturalistic habitats are home to 2,000 animals representing 245 species. The Belle Isle Nature Center sits on a 5-acre site surrounded by undisturbed forested wetlands on Belle Isle State Park in Detroit.
