Like many places near Detroit, Troy suffered during the recession, but good times seem to be back. Auto companies' profits are rising and formerly vacant office space in Troy is filling up. Detroit's woes mean housing in the area is a bargain: The median home price is just $166,000, and property taxes are ultralow. That's a pretty good deal for a city that's been rated the safest in Michigan for 10 of the past 14 years, has great schools and the best community sports program in the state
TROY FAMILY AQUATIC CENTER, an outdoor facility, (open Memorial Day through Labor Day) offers daily and seasonal passes to waves of fun all summer long. Guests can enjoy the main swimming pool with a zero depth entrance (like a beach) and lap lanes; kids spray pools with a waterfall, a water tree and pint size water slide; tube slide and body slide; a sand-filled area with a playscape and toys; sand volleyball courts; deck and lounge chairs; food concessions and shaded patio; sun hill and locker rooms.
TROY HISTORIC VILLAGE has 10 historic buildings that give visitors a glimpse into our region's storied past. Each of these buildings plays a unique role in making your visit a memorable experience. Every one of these buildings allows us to go back in time, but also to connect with the traditions and rituals of today. The Log cabin, church, general store, and school will transport you back in time.
