Glen Arbor Township Community Parks & Recreation Plan
 
The Glen Arbor Parks & Recreation Board, in conjunction with the Township Board, developed a MDNR 5-year Community Parks and Recreation Plan. This document will aid in the future planning and development of park facilities and recreational programming for the Township as well as allow for the Township to pursue State grant funding. The input from the park survey and public hearing has resulted in a draft 5 year plan which is now available for public review and comment for the next 30 days. The public comment period will be followed by public hearing on the plan at 7 pm on January 17, 2023 at the Glen Arbor Township Hall. The document can be viewed HERE .

Glen Arbor Township is one of eleven townships in Leelanau County, located in the northwestern most corner of the Michigan's lower peninsula. Nearly half of the acreage of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (SBDNL) is located within the Township. Due to its proximity to the SBDNL, Glen Arbor sees over a million visitors each year, primarily in the peak summer season. There are approximately 900 year-round residents and the population swells to 5,000 seasonally. The unique combination of forests, dunes, rivers, inland lakes, streams, islands, and Lake Michigan make up the natural character of Glen Arbor Township.  There are abundant opportunities for swimming, boating, sailing, water-skiing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking, and bicycling.  In the fall, nature's changing colors and various hunting possibilities appeal to many. The winter brings ice skating, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing activities. Glen Arbor was established in 1856 and the Township Hall is located at 6394 W. Western Avenue.
