Overview

Huron Highlands Park​ is a 1.67 acre neighborhood park off of Skydale Road, just west of Pontiac Trail on the city's north side. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas Map for location context. The park features a play area, volleyball area, picnic tables and open fields. An asphalt path connects through the grassy park from Larkspur Street to Skydale, the two entrances to the park.

In addition to the built amenities, this park has a lot of interesting plants featured. Both sign gardens have​ native and non-native ornamental plants. The northern sign garden boasts a number of ​berry plants including gooseberry, raspberry, and Nanking cherry shrubs. Trios of peach, apricot, and pear trees can be found to the west of the playground. These fruit trees bloom in spring and bear fruit in late summer. ​To the south of the playground is Himalayan dogwood and a small grouping of apple trees nestled in a small native plant garden. The whole park is lined with native and non-native trees.​

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.​​

Huron Highlands Park and Cloverdale Park​ were acquired by the city in 1960. The park began to be developed in 1974. Improvements were made to the paths and sidewalks in the park in 2009 to make sure that they are ADA compliant.​
