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 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.​
