ABOUT THE VILLAGE OF LAKE ORION
The Village of Lake Orion is a quaint, historic lakeside community located in northern Oakland County, approximately 45 minutes north of downtown Detroit and just 6 miles north of the Palace of Auburn Hills. Lake Orion is 1.3 square miles in size with a 2010 population of 2,973 residents, and growing.
“Lake Orion” is often used to describe both the village and the much larger Orion Township, of which the village is a part. The village originated as a resort town and over time has incorporated elements of a bedroom community. Because of this, the Village of Lake Orion has adopted the reputation and motto: “Where Living is a Vacation”.
