Swartz Creek is a small, homey town with a wide demographic variety. Most of Swartz Creek consists of farms that grow mostly wheat and corn. This town is equal distance from quiet, country farmlands and from urban areas like the city of Flint, and many residents of Flint came to Swartz Creek after the water crisis and has changed it economically. Swartz Creek is generally an area that consists of many elderly people but throughout the years, there has been an increase in youths around our area. There are not many places for the youthful population to enjoy and have an engaging childhood in our town. Our town is an older town and this reflects in our infrastructure which makes it seems inferior to other towns in the surrounding counties.

Swartz Creek is a small town that is very close to any amenity you could desire. There are a couple bar-type places for nightlife but it is mostly family-centered. High school football games and other athletic events are common get-togethers. It is very close to the business area of Flint Township so shopping and restaurants are close but not too close. It is surrounded by fields and woods and it is common to see deer and other wild life while driving near town.
It’s a wonderful community with safe neighborhoods as well as great local businesses. What I love most is the performing arts programs at the High School. Our performing arts center is a wonderful facility that gives our arts kids a place to express themselves and perform in a professional-looking theatre.
