Southgate is truly an exciting hometown! Located nine miles south of the City of Detroit, Southgate is a desirable, vibrant, and progressive community with a very active Downtown Development Authority. We consider ourselves the “Heart” of Downriver! We are conveniently located near the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, various freeways, the Detroit River, excellent hospitals and outstanding recreational areas.
Recreation is important in our community. What started as a single park site of 36 acres in 1949 has now grown through gifts and acquisitions to its present compliment of 74.4 acres, consisting of nine neighborhood parks and playfields, and two community parks. Our baseball and softball sites host several major tournaments. The Southgate Ice Arena offers two sheets of ice. Southgate is also very proud to offer in-line hockey, a Municipal Golf Course with a Clubhouse Restaurant, and an expanding soccer program.
