Report a Problem - A2 Fix It 

To report any maintenance issues or other problem during your park visit, please report through A2Fix It​. Keep in mind that parks are large spaces and A2 Fix It requests can be difficult to find without detailed information. When reporting an issue in a park please include location details. There is a details and description section near the end of the request process to help you provide this. In addition, users can utilize the pin (website) or X (mobile app) feature to provide specific location information inside the park. Finally, please consider including a wide angle photo or include background landmarks, which helps staff find and fix the problem. ​​​​​​

History​

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

The city acquired the land for Plymouth Parkway Park in 1927. The land was gifted to the city by the Board of Road Commissioners of the County of Washtenaw​, under the condition that it be used as parkland only. The park served to create an attractive and welcoming entrance to the city for drivers heading downtown using Plymouth. The ​playground was constructed in 2004, as $43,000 of improvements were made to the park.​
