Allmendinger Park is an 8-acre park located on Pauline Boulevard between Hutchins and Edgewood Avenue, southwest of downtown. View the
Ann Arbor Parks and Natural Areas map for location context. It has a mix of open spaces and oak woods. The park contains softball fields, a restroom facility (closed in winter) and water fountain, a play area nestled in an oak and hickory grove, picnic tables, a tennis court and a basketball court. An accessible asphalt path connects the play area, picnic area and restroom facility. In the spring, lilacs along the southwest edge blossom. Many folks come here to fly kites, run with their dogs, chase their kids around the baseball diamonds, practice martial arts and picnic. The kid's playground makes a good birthday spot and provides plenty of shade. A favorite feature of the playground is the classic merry go round.
There is a small shelter between the public restrooms that can be rented for meetings or food and beverage set-up, and includes a sink and refrigerator. Contact
park rentals for information on reserving or hosting an event at Allmendinger.
During the winter, Allmendinger is a pick-up location for residents to get a sand/salt mixture to help treat sidewalks. For more information, visit the snow removal page.
