Welcome to West Lakeland Township

West Lakeland is an urban township organized in July of 1950 and is located along the St. Croix River in east central Washington County. We are located off of the north side of the I-94 corridor. To find us, exit from I-94 on to Manning Avenue and head northeast. We are a decentralized community with a unique lifestyle enjoyed by our residents. Living in West Lakeland Township allows the area residents to enjoy the benefits of a rural community close to an urban center, without costly public services.  Older homes, characteristic of the St. Croix Valley, still remain in the area. The residents and farms of our Township, and neighboring communities, have contributed much to the unobstructed lifestyle of the Township which we enjoy today.
