Bowling Green takes pride in being a traditional American college town. I hope that you will take time to explore your new community and take advantage of the many opportunities offered here including our beautiful parks, great restaurants and unique shopping opportunities. Bowling Green has something for everyone!

The City of Bowling Green provides many services. Twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week, our top-notch police, fire and ambulance services are set to respond should an emergency arise. In a role more behind the scenes, the City provides reliable utility services including electricity and water. There are other services available to assist you and I encourage you to contact the City should you need anything. Now that you live here in Bowling Green, please know that you are considered residents of our community. With all of our residents, whether they are pursuing an education at BGSU, or working full time and raising a family, we encourage civic and community pride.
