Histor​​y 

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​.​​

Development plans for the surrounding neighborhood began in 1989 and the developer agreed to set aside some land as parkland for the city as part of the site development agreement. The park itself was not ready for development until 1999, as grading and other sitework had to take place per the agreement, including clearing a small site for the playground.
