Our Community

Watervliet is a safe and friendly community that provides a good quality of life for families and guests. The downtown area features a scenic old fashioned Main Street.

The Paw Paw Lakes area has been a long time tourist destination along with the beautiful farmland, rolling hills, quaint shops and wineries. Residents and visitors alike look forward to the lazy days of summer spent on Paw Paw Lake boating, swimming and water skiing. There are plenty of other activities to take part in right downtown like the yearly Independence Day weekend celebration that includes a parade, cook-off, carnival, fireworks and a Duck Race in Flaherty Park. Local residents enjoy activities at beautiful Hays Park with baseball fields, a skate park for all skill levels of skate boarders and inline skaters. Residents and guests also enjoy the canoe launch and fishing pier. The winter months offer several area snowmobile trails, ice fishing during the coldest of the winter months and there’s always sledding at Hays Park for kids of all ages.  New to Flaherty Park is a 3-par, nine-hole disc golf course.  It is played with a frisbee and scored like golf.

The Watervliet Area is a wonderful place to live, work and play. Come visit and see for yourself why we really are a tourist destination for all seasons in our beautiful corner of Michigan's Great Southwest!
