A200 Bicentennial Park Campaign

City of A2 200 Park brochure cover

Located at the corner of Ellsworth Road and Platt Road, Southeast Area Park was renamed Bicentennial Park with a plan to improve the park. The primary enhancement will be Ann Arbor’s first universal-access splash pad, updated playground, pavilion and restrooms, all of which will be solar-powered. Additional items being considered are a new building and shelter to support park operations and programming, trail improvements and more. By supporting these enhancements, the park will see an increase in accessibility that will offer a vibrant, innovative and inclusive environment where neighbors, friends and families can connect. The City of Ann Arbor hopes to raise funding to ensure the design, construction and completion of the projects. Priority needs are listed below.
