Tentative: Event scheduling, park rentals may resume in February

As you may know, Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation has not yet resumed scheduling rentals and special events due to COVID-19. Annually, we begin scheduling for the coming year on the first Monday in January. This year, we hope to resume park rentals and special event bookings beginning the first week of February 2021. Please note this is only a temporary date that we are currently targeting. We will continue to follow the guidelines from the Washtenaw County Health Department and Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s office with regard to capacity guidelines and physical distancing recommendations. We will continue to update social media and the city’s website when we have a confirmed date. Thank you for understanding.

​The Cobblestone Farm house, completed in 1845, was originally a two-family home. Benajah Ticknor, a U.S. Naval surgeon, and Heman Ticknor, whig​ politician and farmer, shared occupancy of this classic revival structure with their families. Being restored and interpreted to reflect its mid-nineteenth cent​​ury appearance, the sit​​e provides a view of past rural life in Washtenaw County. Today the site is administered through Parks and Recreation Services with support from the Cobblestone Farm Association.​​​​
