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 by the Board of Road Commissioners of the County of Washtenaw​. It was given under the condition that the land can only be used as park land.​ The park served to create an attractive and welcoming entrance to the city for drivers he​ading downtown using Plymouth Road. The ​playground was constructed in 2004, as $43,000 of improvements were made to the park.​
