Heritage Garden

The beautiful Heritage Garden is maintained by the Shelby Gardeners Club. Serene and stunning, the location is commonly used for relaxation as well as photography sessions. It is located behind the Municipal Offices at 52700 Van Dyke Ave. south of 24 Mile Road and sits adjacent to a 2.5 acre spring-fed lake. As a testament to all the hardwork performed by volunteers in maintaining and enhancing Shelby Township's natural beauty, SGC has donated the unique sculpture, "Petal Point" (pictured right) to reside at Heritage Garden.
