There are many​ opportunities for volunteering and getting engaged with the Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation Services Unit. GIVE 365 and the seasonal Adopt-a-Park program​​ offer volunteer opportunities with many​​​ levels​ of commitment.​

Report a Problem - A2 Fix It

To report any maintenance issues or other problem during your park visit, please report through A2Fix It​. Keep in mind that parks are large spaces and A2 Fix It requests can be hard​​ to find without detailed information. When reporting an issue in a park please include location details. There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. Users can also​ utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Please consider including a wide angle photo, which helps staff find and fix the problem. ​​​​​​​​

Gifts and Donations 

Information on donating to the parks and the Guide to Giving can be found here​. If you have a park improvement idea, a great place to start is through Adopt-a-Park and the​ proposing a special park project​ guide. For information on donating a tree through Adopt-a-Park, the tree donation guide​​​ can help you get started. ​


Ann Arbor's city parks sit on the ancestral and traditional homelands of several indigenous Native peoples. Read a land acknow​ledgement​ from the city and learn more about the early history of the land here​.​​

The first plot of the land that became Windemere Park was acquired by the city in 1972. In 1979 construction of the subdivision, known as Earhart Knolls, was approved. Part of this agreement was that the developer would dedicate some park land to be​​ added to the existing Windemere park. This addition formed the park boundary as it is today. The Glacier Highland Homeowners Association helped develop the master plan for the park and donated some improvements to the park. The park was officially dedicated in 1982.

Recent Developments​

In 2014, a plan was approved to move the existing tennis courts to their current location, after the old courts had been showing signs of age.

In response to a resident request, Parks and Recreation hosted a public survey in August 2022 for community input on adding ​one or two soccer goals in the Park. Thirty residents responded to the survey,​ with 83% responding that they supported adding​ 1-2 soccer goals. Given the survey results, the project is placing one soccer goal facing east.​​​
