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 is now ​Wellington Park was set aside by the developer of the surrounding neighborhood to be used as public land. ​In 1948 the land was given to the Park Department. City Council voted in 1951 to develop the park.
