Cloverdale Park​ is a neighborhood park on Cloverdale Road just west of Pontiac Trail and Manor Drive, on the north side of Ann Arbor. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas Map​ for location context. The park is 1.75 acres in size. This park features a play area, picnic table and basketball court. The park is hilly and green with trees providing lots of ​shade. The park has connections to the Huron Parkway access, sometimes referred to as the Missing Link, a wooded green space that was set aside for road access in the 1950s but never used for that purpose.

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

Cloverdale Park and Huron Highlands Park​ were acquired by the city in 1960, when the development of the surrounding neighborhood was approved. The playground at Cloverdale was constructed in 1999, a year after public input was gathered regarding development of the park. A variety of trees were planted in the park in 2000, after a neighborhood controversy​ over trees that had been cut down in the park.​​​
