The community of Trowbridge Park lies near the southeast corner of Marquette Charter Township, just adjacent to the city of Marquette to the east. While Trowbridge Park is considered a census-designated place (CDP) for statistical purposes, it is also regarded as part of the larger Marquette Township as an unincorporated community. The area was established by Charles Trowbridge when he bought 640 acres of land in 1855, with actual development starting in 1910. Today, Trowbridge Park has grown into a purely residential community that still retains its small town charm within a growing suburban environment.
