​​​Olson Park is a 54-acre parcel that is jointly owned by the City of Ann Arbor and the County Drain Commissioner. Located on the corner of DhuVarren Road and Pontiac Trail south of M-14, the site’s main feature is a pond that was constructed to manage storm water for the Northeast area. 

This park has preserved existing natural features, including the wetlands and woods, the creek and pond, while providing active recreational facilities, including premium athletic fields available for use by permit, a basketball court and a rock climbing playground.  The park also features mountain bicycle trails, paved pedestrian trials and an off-leash dog play area.
