The Ponds Park is a lovely 2.23-acre park tucked into neighborhoods on the south side of Ann Arbor. View the
Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map for location context.
The park has two distinct areas: a developed area and a natural area.
The developed area features a playground, a garden, and a mowed open field. Parents and caregivers can watch children from the nearby benches or from the perimeter sidewalk. The garden features shade trees as well as three-season flowering perennials, including daffodils, irises, daisies, sundrops, sedums, and fountain grasses. Two picnic tables and a grill are also available.
The natural area features trails and many trees, including cottonwoods. Please note that the water features to the west of the natural area of The Ponds Park are part of the apartment complex, not part of the public park.
