Parks & Recreation
Pittsfield Charter Township is committed to providing safe, high-quality programming for the community. The health and safety of our residents is our number one priority, and we're developing innovative ways to continue to connect the people of Pittsfield with opportunities for healthy play and enrichment. We will continue to adhere to the most up-to-date recommendations and best practices as they evolve.
Please note the following updates to our programming:
NEWS - Our NEW pavilion at Montibeller park is now open for reservations! Date availability starts May 1st. Visit our Pavilion Rental Page to learn more, and make your reservation today!
Parks - All Township Parks, trails and greenways remain open from dawn – dusk daily. Pavilion and athletic play field rentals have also resumed, subject to adherence with safety protocols. Park restrooms are closed for the season as of 10/31/22. For more information, please call 734-822-2120.
Community Center Opening Plan - As we transition back to more regular in-person engagement since our closures and virtual engagement since March 2020, we have compiled this Community Center Opening Plan to provide guidelines for greater physical access to recreational programs in a manner that is safe and responsible. The protocols were developed in coordination with Federal (CDC), State (MDHHS) and Local (WCPH) guidelines. Given the fluid nature of the Pandemic, it is imperative to note that the guidelines and recommendations of the Opening Plan may be revised in order to address scenarios that arise as we move forward. The central focus is, and will remain, to provide for the safety and well-being of Pittsfield Township employees, volunteers, instructors and participants. Please feel free to call the Community Center at 734.822.2117 with any questions.
