STOCKBRIDGE
Where Your Adventure Begins

Veterans Park Adventures

Stockbridge's Veterans Park is jammed-packed with the latest equipment that you wouldn't normally find in a small town. From our all-new pump track and refurbished skateboard ramps, to our well-maintained playgrounds, there is something for the whole family.  Get ready for an absolute blast playing pickleball, gaga ball, tennis, basketball, or volleyball with friends and family!

Adventures Often Begin at a Crossroads

At the crossroads of M-52 & M106, Stockbridge is uniquely positioned between Ann Arbor, home of the University of Michigan, and East Lansing, home of Michigan State University. We’re also within 15 minutes of I-94 and also I-96, making an easy commute to Detroit or Grand Rapids.

Amenities That Invite Adventure

The village of Stockbridge is an attractive place to spend quality time, whether you are a lifelong resident or a visitor looking for a new place to call home. In the center of town and unique to Stockbridge is its iconic township hall. Built on the Square in 1892 and completely renovated in 1979, it is the only original opera house in Michigan still standing.
 

Just around the corner, tucked back from the street, lies Veterans Park. This community-friendly space includes a Skate Park, Tennis Courts, Basketball Court, Playground, Picnic Areas, and the all-new Pump Track. Veterans Park is also  the gathering place for Day in the Village, All Clubs Day (for Motorcyclists), and Harvest Moon Festival, among other events and activities. 
 

If you are interested in hiking, running, and biking, check out the Stockbridge trailhead for the Mike Levine Lakeland State Trail, a 34-mile-long linear trail that stretches between Ingham and Livingston counties. For wildlife and nature enthusiasts, just outside the downtown area is Beckwith Nature  Preserve, which provides 30 acres of quiet natural area with walking trails.

Award-winning Schools

In addition to recreational opportunities, a quality school system is an importantpart of a healthy community. Stockbridge schools consistently place in the top 30 percent of school districts statewide. With just under 1,300 students, the District’s student to teacher ratio is on par with the state average of 18:1. At the High School level, Stockbridge has award-winning school programs such as the Uncaged Student News and Stockbridge Robotics Team, as well as  Competitive Class B Sports Teams.

“I have been located here in Stockbridge for 
25 years and my agency has been here for 
over 70 years. Stockbridge is a welcoming 
community and a great place to grow your 
business.”

  Jon Fillmore, Owner
Abbott & Fillmore Agency, Inc.

“Originally from Stockbridge and owning 
a business here for the last ten years, I 
feel grateful for the relationships we’ve 
built. We were looking to start our practice 
elsewhere, but we really enjoy the small town 
atmosphere and being downtown.”
