​​​​​​Overview​

Frisinger Park is a 3.6 acre neighborhood park located on the corner of East Stadium Boulevard and Woodbury Drive in central Ann Arbor.  View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas Map​ for location context​. With its large field, it hosts many Ann Arbor Rec and Ed sporting events: soccer, baseball, and softball, to name a few. The playground and picnic areas are well shaded on the south end of the park, far away from the sounds of E. Stadium Blvd. The park is within walking distance to the Big House (University of Michigan Stadium), and because park rules prohibit alcohol or smoking,  this is a favorite, family-friendly spot for tail-gating on game days. Local restaurants and shops can be found on S. Industrial Highway, within a 10 minute walk.​

​Access and Parking

There is street parking along Woodbury Drive on the west edge of the park.

The park is accessible on foot and bicycle. There is a bike rack on the sidewalk off Woodbury Dr. near the southwestern end​ of the park. There is a footpath that runs the entire east edge of the park.

The park is located near several other city parks including Graydon Park to the northwest and Iroquois Park a short walk due east.

Public transportation: There are three bus stops in close proximity to the park with the closest b​u​s stop​ on E. Stadium Blvd. at the northeast corner of the park. Visit The Ride for route and schedule details and check out the parks ride guide for information on visiting parks by bus.  ​​

Re​port a Problem - A2 Fix It​

To report maintenance issues, or other problem during your park visit, please report through A2Fix It.  Parks are large spaces and A2​​​ Fix It re​quests can be difficult to find without detailed information. When reporting an issue in a park please include location details. There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. In addition, users can utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Finally, please consider including a wide angle photo or include background landmarks, which helps staff find and fix the problem.

​Park History

Ann Arbor's city parks sit on the ancestral and traditional homelands of several indigenous Native peoples. Read a land acknow​ledgement​ from the city and learn more about the early history of the land h​ere​.​​​

The land that now comprises Frisinger Park was donated to the city as a gift by the Frisinger Land Co. on June 15, 1936. The softball backstop was built in 1964.
