Redford Charter Township

Redford Charter Township is a charter township in Wayne County, Southeastern Michigan and has a population of 48,362. The township is named after the spot in which Native Americans and early European settlers crossed the River Rouge. Rouge means “red” in French. It has two sister cities: St. Johann in Tirol, Austria and Gau-Algesheim, Germany. Redford Charter Township hosts annual events such as The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Prayer Breakfast, Bunny Brunch, Perennial Exchange, and Oktoberfest. Some fun places to visit are The Redford Theatre, Glenhurst Golf Course, and Sandy’s by the Beach.
