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.
As the area south of Greenbrier Park began to be developed, Folkstone was dedicated to preserve some of the woods in the area.
This park contains an excellent example of the oak-hickory forests that once dominated this area. 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.
