Tuebingen Park is 7 acres in size and located off Tuebingen Parkway in the city's northeast side. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map​ for location context. ​This park is primarily a natural area with exercise activity stations, unpaved trails and a dirt bike course. Tuebingen is named after the city of Tübingen​, Germany which is one of Ann Arbor's sister cities.​

Tucked away in the natural area you will find the Tuebingen Park Cycling Area which features a dirt/off-road pump track and several downhill dirt jump lines with doubles, tabletops, shark fins, hips, rollers and berms. A dirt jumper's playground, Tuebingen Park Cycling Area draws riders from across southeast Michigan! Tuebingen Park also features a segment of downhill/uphill single-track MTB/XC trail connecting to Stapp Nature Area, and the park is near Traver Creek Nature Area, Leslie Park, Dhu Varren Woods Nature Area ​and several other parks. Please note this rider built course is for more experienced riders and is ride at your own risk. Visit the Bike Recreation page for more information about bike recreation within Ann Arbor parks.

Tuebingen Park is named after the city of Tübingen​, Germany​, which is one of Ann Arbor's sister cities. ​The sister city program originated from President Eisenhower's People to People program, an effort to foster cultural exchange between the US and foreign states that were once enemies. Ann Arbor now has seven sister cities, the first established being Tübingen in 1965.​ The cities of Ann Arbor and Tübingen have a long history of exchanging visits and delegations over the years– most recently in 2015, when Ann Arbor sent a delegation to visit. The cities have drawn comparisons, being college towns near larger industrial centers. Read more about the City of Ann Arbor's relationships and history with Tübingen and its other sister cities here.​
