​Overview​​

Folkstone Park is a small, 3-acre city park located in the northwest section of Ann Arbor. This park contains an excellent example of the oak-hickory forests that once dominated this area. There is a small wetland within the forest. ​


Access and Parking​

Access to the park is from Folkstone Court off Larchmont Drive, near Green Road. Parking is available along Folkstone Court. This park is bordered by Greenbriar Park to the north. Picnic tables are situated in a small, shady, open area near the woods.


Park History​

As the area south of Greenbrier Park began to be developed, Folkstone was dedicated to preserve some of the woods in the area.​​
