Parks and Natural Resources

Day in and day out "We build connections in our community: Neighbor to Neighbor; Neighbor to Nature; and Neighbor to History. We do this by preserving our history, conserving our green infrastructure, and engaging our community in the outdoors."

We have a dream that someday "every resident in Rochester Hills to have a lasting memory of the community experiences we provide and to have a vibrant understanding of where we came from as a community; to provide an understanding of why the outdoors & our history is a crucial part of the premier place to live, work, and raise a family."

We have three main divisions to accomplish this mission and vision: The Van Hoosen Museum; Natural Resources Division; and our Parks division.

We encourage you to connect to your community! Find out more in your area of interest on the left or below.
