Report a P​roblem - A2 Fix It 

To report any maintenance issues or other problem during your park visit, please report through A2Fix It​. Keep in mind that parks are large spaces and A2 Fix It requests can be hard​​ to find without detailed information. When reporting an issue in a park please include location details. There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. Users can also​ utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Please consider including a wide angle photo, which helps staff find and fix the problem. ​​​​​​​​

Histor​​y ​

​Ann Arbor's city parks sit on the ancestral and traditional homelands of several indigenous Native peoples. Read a land acknow​ledgement​ from the city and learn more about the early history of the land here​.​​​

The parcel of land was originally part of the Brookside subdivision​ that was developed in 1952. You won't find a "brook" at Brookside Park, but nearby Mallett's Creek runs along the southeast corner of the neighborhood.​

A 1947 aerial photo shows mostly farmland in this area. Current parkland is highlighted in blue and current property lines are drawn over the land. The Brookside Subdivision and Park were registered by deed in Pittsfield Township, Washtenaw County in October, 1951. An aerial photograph of the Brookside subdivision in development in 1952 can be found here. Brookside Park became part of the City of Ann Arbor in 2005 when the land was purchased from Pittsfield Charter Township.  The play area and the split rail fence were added in 2006.​
