South Maple Park is a 7.83 acre park off of ​Liberty Street, just west of South Maple Road on the city's western edge. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas Map for location context. The park contains tennis courts (with overstripping for pickleball), a play area, sprawling open grass fields and a wooded area separating the two portions of the park. An accessible asphalt trail connects to the park from the subdivision to the South of the park and East.

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.

Park Adopters

Volunteers from the church participate in a monthly workday in the park during the warmer months to help maintain the park, including tasks like picking up litter, weeding the playground, removing invasive brush and more. Let us know if you would like to hear about upcoming workdays or if you would like to dedicate your time to a particular park project, email [email protected] or cal​l 734.794.6445.
