Earhart Park​ is a small two acre natural area tucked between neighborhoods on the eastern side of the city, by Martin Luther King Jr. Element​ary School. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map​ for location context. Access is from Waldenwood Drive, off Earhart Road. Although small, Earhart contains a good population of frogs in its small natural pond. Some frogs you might see are spring peeper, green frog, and American toad​. The pond is bordered by marsh, adding to the local plant diversity. A trail winds through the woods to the property of King Elementary School.​
