​​​​Bromley Park is a neighborhood park ​off Briarcliff Street near the corner of Nixon and Huron Parkway in the northeast corner of the city. View the Ann Arbor Parks & Nature Areas Map​ for location context. The park is 2.5 acres in size. The park features a large playground, picnic tables, benches, an open grass play field and a rose garden that has been maintained by a neighbor for decades. There are several small stands of trees including a variety of maples and pines. Also in the park is a small grove in a wooded area with Bromley Book Box​, a little free library. Paved paths connect the park to Briarcliff on the west and Sheffield Court to the east.​

Ann Arbor's city parks sit on the ancestral and traditional homelands​ of several indigenous Native peoples. Read a land acknowledgement from the city and learn more a​bout the early history of the land here.​​

The park was originally called North Campus Heights Park. It was acquired by the City of Ann Arbor in 1963 when it was dedicated by the developer Brooks Barron, treasurer of Arbor Heights Building Corporation. At the time it was required​ that new housing developments dedicated some land to be used as park space.​​​

In the 1980s there were complaints as stormwater from the park ran into nearby houses. In 1986 the name of the park was ​​changed to Bromley, a change welcomed by neighbors. The name was changed because of a new subdivision. In 1987 a new play area was done by the Kiwanis Club. In 1996 there were meetings about upgrading the park with new equipment and benches.

Nearby is similarly named Bromley Park, a subdivision developed and built by Pulte Homes between 2002-2004, south of Geddes, north of Clark and east of Harris in Superior Township. There are also Bromley Park Condominiums as well. That park includes a pool and playground maintained by the Bromley Park Community Association. It can get a little confusing!​
