Hours and Rules
Meadowbrook Park is a 2.18-acre neighborhood park located at the end of 7th St. at the cul-de-sac. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map for location context. The park connects the neighborhoods near Lawton Elementary School on the north with the neighborhood along Northbrook Drive on the south and the Meadowbrook Village Apartments.

The playground area features a sand pit and swing set with four swings, including two infant seats. Nearby are two park benches. The large grass field is flat and large enough for frisbee, flying a kite or kicking a soccer ball around. Shade can be found under trees along the path and among a line of small trees framing the north side of the park.

There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. In addition, users can utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Finally, please consider including a wide angle photo or include background landmarks, which helps staff find and fix the problem.
