​Plymouth Parkway Park​ is a six acre park located along Plymouth Road​​ just north of the intersection of Plymouth, Broadway Street and Maiden Lane and north of downtown. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas Map for location context. The park is on both sides of Plymouth, but most of the park amenities are on the southern side of the road. The park contains a playground, benches, picnic table, asphalt walk connections and​​ a stairway that leads to Traver Road. Traver Creek runs along the southern border of the park, along with a stand of tall trees providing shade.

The paths in this park receive winter maintenance.

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 city acquired the land for Plymouth Parkway Park in 1927. The land was gifted to the city to be used as a park by the Board of Road Commissioners of the County of Washtenaw​. The park served to create an attractive and welcoming entrance to the city for drivers he​ading downtown using Plymouth. The ​playground was constructed in 2004, as $43,000 of improvements were made to the park.​
