2013 Independence Fest
Celebrate the 4th!

The Independence Township Department of Parks, Recreation, & Seniors is looking for public input regarding the fireworks display launched July 4th.  Through a partnership with Everest Academy on Clarkston road, the fireworks launch site was moved two years ago from Clintonwood Park to the higher ground behind the Academy.   

The primary reason for the move was to increase the visibility to people around the Township and still provide a spectacular show to people in the park.  A decision will be made later this year whether or not the move is a permanent move or to re-locate the launch site back to Clintonwood Park. 

The survey can be accessed from the Department website at, or directly at
