Welcome to the Department of Parks and Recreation!Dear Woodhaven Residents,
The City has re-opened outdoor park facilities for public use. As we enter the month of September, all indoor programming is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This very difficult decision to pause indoor programs is based on the continuing uncertainty surrounding the disease and the need to practice safe social distancing measures to help eliminate the spread of the virus from person to person. The health and safety of the community served as the guide. We appreciate your understanding and support.
Once the virus is under control and we are able to gather safely again, the department will institute programs and services in a very timely manner. Our dedicated program staff members are ready and excited to begin offering services once conditions are deemed safe by the Governor and public health officials.
If you have questions or concerns about refunds, services and future programs, please contact us at (734) 675-4926. The community center is closed but the staff will be answering your phone calls, Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.The Woodhaven on Wheels van service continues to operate Monday through Friday. The van
service provides assistance to senior citizens and residents who are unable to drive due medical
reasons. If you require service, please contact our driver/dispatch at (734) 231-6987.
The City of Woodhaven Facebook page and website at www.woodhavenmi.org are great resources for immediate community updates and notices from all the city departments.
We can’t thank you enough for your patience and the care you have taken while utilizing the parks and open spaces over the past several months.
We will see you soon and please stay safe.
