Overview

Folkstone Park​ is a small 3 acre forested nature area​ in the northeast of Ann Arbor. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map for location context. Trails cross through the park and connect it to Greenbrier Park​ to the north. This park contains a good ​example of the oak-hickory forests that once filled this area. There is a small wetland within the forest. ​The understory of this forest is rich with rue anemone, bladdernut, Virginia waterleaf and blue stemmed goldenrod. Within the forest is a small wetland, a nice place to look for frogs in the spring.
