Waterford Township is known as the “Lakeland Paradise.” The lakes, all 3,080 acres of them, and auto industry brought rapid population growth to this area. Most of Waterford is single family residential with some apartments and condominiums. The Township is also working on beautification, preservation of historic areas and improving public facilities. Waterford Community, Clarkston Community and Pontiac Public schools serve this community, which is also home to the Oakland County International Airport. Most of the recreation revolves around Cass and Elizabeth Lakes. Both have private and public beaches and boating facilities. Oakland County maintains the nearby Waterford Oaks County Park, a 153-acre park that includes a BMX bike track, court game complex, walking paths, nature trails and “The Wave”, a 475,000-gallon wave action swimming pool.
