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.​​

Glacier Highlands Park was acquired by the city in 1963 as the surrounding neighborhood was developed. The land was given to the city by the developer, as new developments at the time had a requirement to include park land. The first basketball court was installed in 1973 after getting public input.​
