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 here​.​​

Lansdowne 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 soccer goals were installed in 2000. In 2006, new benches and tables, a new path, and a play structure were added.
