​​​Burr Oak Park is a lovely 3.3 acre neighborhood park on the far west side of Ann Arbor. View the Ann Arbor Parks and Nature Areas map​ for location context. The part is split into two sections on either side of Burr Oak Drive. The majority of the park, including the playground, is on the east side of the street. A small section that connects to Lakewood Elementary is on the west side of the street. The park contains a playground, benches and an accessible asphalt walk connection between Burr Oak Drive and Atterberry Drive. The park has grassy open fields and some tall trees providing shade. There are three gardens in the park which are maintained by park adopters that provide seasonal colors and add to the park's atmosphere. Some of the​ native plants in these gardens include Virginia Bluebells, Wild Geranium, Meadow Rue and Purple Coneflower. See if you can spot them!​

The Liberty Glen subdivision was developed in 1989. T​he land for Burr Oak Park was left to be used as public parkland, as was required as part of the escrow agreement with the City of Ann Arbor. The park was developed and improved in the 1990s with help from the neighborhood association.​​

In August 2021 the Adopt-a-Park program partnered with Twin Willow Ranch to bring a herd of goats to the park to help clear invasive shrubs and poison ivy. Adopt-a-Park hosted a public survey to provide feedback and an open house event. Read the project summary to learn more about goatscaping.

A herd of 6 goats returned from Twin Willow Ranch in September ​​2022 to eat invasive shrubs and poison ivy in the wooded space.​

Active Adopters

The Liberty Glen Homeowners Association is active in helping to care for the park and advocate for improvements! The association conducts an annual neighborhood workday at the park each May. To let us know if you would like to get involved, email [email protected] or cal​l 734.794.6445.
