Overview​

​​Eisenhower Park​ is a 10 acre greenway located along I-94, just south of Scio Church Road. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map​ for location context. It serves as a buffer between the highway and nearby homes, and now a new trail provides new connections through the area. The park consists of old fields and lowlands. It connects to Churchill Downs Park on the north and Dundee Drive​ on the south.

History​​​

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.​​

In 2021 resident interest led to the beginning of a path through Eisenhower Park, connecting Churchill Downs Park to Northbrook Drive (see project map). The Adopt-a-Park program accepted a special park project application for volunteers to cut brush and put down woodchips for a walking path​. As part of the review process, neighbor input was solicited. To view the survey response summary and and the August 2021 update, click here​. You can also review the July notice and original project communication here. Workdays happened in Nove​mber 2021, September 2022, October 2022 and work was completed on a final workday on November 13th, 2022. The trail now provides a new connection through the neighborhood. At the same time, work happened in Churchill Downs Park and the northernmost section of Eisenhower on a new retention basin. Work also included an unpaved path, which connects the park to Scio Church Road, further connecting the city.​
