Introduction to Saline



With a population of just over 9,100 people, Saline might be a relatively small city. But don’t think for a moment that “small” has to equal “sleepy”!

Saline is bursting with things to do, for virtually every taste and lifestyle. The city boasts numerous parks, which, in addition to providing opportunities to play and enjoy the outdoors, host numerous events, such as summer movie screenings and fitness classes. Saline also holds its own community fair each summer, offering entertainment and fun for visitors of all ages. Oktoberfest brings a taste of Germany to downtown Saline in the fall, celebrating the city’s relationship with its German sister city, Lindenberg. Residents can also take in parades honoring holidays such as Christmas and Memorial Day, browse the farmers market, and enjoy the city’s unique options for shopping and dining.

Local attractions include the historic Rentschler Farm Museum, the Saline Sculpture Walk, and Wellers, a property once owned by Henry Ford. Saline also offers easy access to all that’s offered by Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan, just a short drive down North Maple Road.

Neighborhoods and developments in Saline include Torwood, Austin Commons, Beckington, Sheffield Square, Travis Pointe, and Wildwood Commons. Buyers looking in Washtenaw County are sure to find something that suits them, whether their family is large or small.
