The City of South Lyon is located near the crossroads of Interstate 96 and US 23, in the southwest corner of Oakland County, Michigan. Lansing, the state capital of Michigan is located less than an hour drive west and Detroit is just 45 minutes to the east. The center of the business district is at Ten Mile Road and Pontiac Trail, known as Lake Street and Lafayette within the City. At just 3.5 miles in size, the City offers small town living with the convenience of nearby interstate highways, major metropolitan areas and international airports. Originally established as an agricultural center built around two railroads and incorporated as a city in 1930. South Lyon has become a center for manufacturing with 70 acres of light industrial properties within the city limits. South Lyon’s utility systems service residents and businesses, an important feature unavailable in surrounding areas. Known for its historic and charming downtown, annual festivals, top-notch parks and excellent schools, the City of South Lyon offers an unparalleled quality of life.
The newly expanded Salem-South Lyon District Library opened for business on May 2, 1998. The 15,000 sq.ft. facility is being finance by a $2.5 million bond issue approved by the voters in May 1995. The building is designed to accommodate an expansion from 22,000 volumes to 60,000 volumes.
The City has over 200 acres of parkland including McHattie Park, Volunteer Park, Paul Baker Memorial Park, Andover Park, Columbia Park and the Huron Valley Rail Trail.
McHattie Park is located in the heart of the City of South Lyon off Lafayette Street, this nearly 15 acre park has something for everyone, including playground equipment, little league ball diamonds, sand volleyball courts, sledding hill, outdoor ice skating and hockey rink, along with plenty of open spaces for picnics and outdoor fun. McHattie Park is home to the historic Witch’s Hat Depot Museum, the Freight House and the Victorian Gazebo. A great place to walk the dog, take the children to play or just enjoy the views from a park bench.
The Little Village Chapel is a 1930’s era “kit building” located in McHattie Park’s Historic Village. Charming and cozy, it is the perfect location for a smaller, intimate wedding ceremony of 75 guest or less. The Chapel is equipped with air conditioning as well as a sound system. The nearby gazebo is also available for rental.
Paul Baker Memorial Park is at the intersection of Lake Street and Reynold Sweet Parkway along the Huron Valley Rail Trail. With a beautiful fountain and gazebo this small park is a great place to stop and rest as you make your way along the trail.
