The Flint River ambles through the city of Flushing, providing a picturesque setting for this charming and vibrant small town. Located just three miles west of Interstate-75 and approximately 10 miles northwest of Downtown Flint, Flushing is a modern community with an old-fashioned rural atmosphere. The city is nestled among rolling hills in Genesee County and is surrounded by the Township of Flushing. Quality residential neighborhoods, good schools and extensive recreational facilities are a few of the features that continue to draw new residents to the area. The Flint River played a major role in the town's growth and development. The mill sites on the river provided the town with its first center of activity and the river continues to be an important community focal point today. The peaceful River Walk path on the bridge's south side is one of the most striking visual assets in the community. There are now several different physical links to the river in the downtown area, offering spectacular views of the river valley. The name Genesee means "Beautiful Valley," an apt description of the Flushing area. Five lush city parks, including a 108-acre nature park on the river, provide the area's nearly 18,000 residents with opportunities to hike, ride horses, cross-country ski, play soccer and picnic. Numerous annual events, such as the Fabulous '50s Festival and the Christmas Candle Walk, bring residents together to celebrate the seasons and strengthen community bonds.
