Overview

​Pittsview Park is a half acre park containing a picnic table in a small mowed area and an undeveloped natural area. ​View the A​nn Arbo​r Parks and Nature Areas Map for location context​.

​Occasionally, visitors may encounter a city park with no trails – as is the case at Pittsview Park. These natural areas represent a unique recreation and conservation feature of the city’s park system. In these relatively few spaces across the city, off-trail exploration is encouraged – a rare opportunity to meander through a wild space in our urban context. Visitors are also invited to reflect on the conservation value and biodiversity of these spaces, where the Parks & Recreation’s Natural Area Preservation staff work to steward, restore and inventory the natural communities throughout the city’s parks.​

The S​wift Run Drain runs through the park, providing a wetland for birds, small mammals and plant growth.  The picnic table near the wooded area provides a nice spot to rest and enjoy the beauty of the park. The area was re-zoned as an undeveloped natural area and park in the Summer of 2009 as part of a large rezoning measure by the City Council, impacting 11 city parks.
