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 the eastern portion (2 acres) of South Maple Park was acquired by the City of Ann Arbor in 1976 using funds from the 1971 G.O.P.B. Bond issue for Park Development and Acquisition. The park was intended to provide public parkland to the housing complexes adjacent to the park, which had previously been without parkland within walking distance.  Construction on the park began in 1976. The tennis courts were built in 1979, on top of a water reservoir that provided a large, flat area to build them on.
