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 now comprises Woodbury Park and the surrounding apartment complex used to be the location of the University of Michigan Botanical Gardens. From 1916 to 1961,  the ​fifty-two-acre gardens were used to grow plants for research, classes, and decorations for university functions; there was no aesthetic principle involved in its design and maintenance. ​In 1960, the gardens moved to their current location ​​on North Dixboro Road. ​​Development on the Woodbury Gardens apartments near Woodbury Park began in in 1969. The developers named the streets Astor and Wisteria in honor of the land's former use.
