land acknowledgement from the city and learn more about the early history of the land
The land that comprises what is now Manchester Park was acquired by the city in 1964. The park used to be called Washtenaw-Manchester Park, and it bordered a park called "Park Washtenaw" which is land that is owned by Washtenaw County. The city and the county agreed to end the lease in 1982. All of the county-owned land, which is now County Farm Park, is maintained by the county.
