Welcome to the Charter Township of Garfield!

Township Offices will be closed on Monday, February 16th in observance of Presidents' Day. 

Buffalo Ridge Trail Update:

The Township has recently had productive discussions with Great Wolf Lodge to secure the final easement necessary for the construction of Phase II of the Buffalo Ridge Trail. This phase of trail will provide a kid-friendly connection between Traverse City West Middle School, Kid's Creek Park, the "New Y" and the nearby neighborhoods. 

We understand that our request is making its way through the required channels, and we are hopeful that the details can be finalized in time to allow for construction of this trail this year. Thank you to everyone who helped express to our corporate neighbor how important this trail is to you! See you on the trails!
