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.​​

The City of Ann Arbor acquired the land now known as Kilburn Park from Guenther Building Co. in 1996. Over the next several years, improvements were made to the park including the addition of the play structure in 2001.​

Active Adopters

Park neighbors are active in caring for the park's two beautiful gardens and advocating for improvements. You will find a variety of flowers in the gardens including beautiful peonies in early summer! Adopt-a-Park hosts a spring volunteer workday in partnership with the neighborhood to mulch trees, weed the playground and tend to the gardens.
