Ann Arbor’s Brookside Park Playground Profile

Brookside Park is a small neighborhood park. The park has a climbing bar dome, swings, chin up bars, and a bouncer. There is no play structure or slides.

At 12 my daughter loved the dome climber. I remember having play sets like this on school playgrounds.

She challenged herself on the chin up bars. At 5’2″ she was tall enough to jump to the tallest bars. There are two shorter bars that are better for younger kids.

Even at 12, she heads straight for the bouncer. The bouncer at Brookside Park is a dolphin.

Brookside Park is a small park. With it’s location on Stone School Rd between Ellsworth and Eisenhower, it’s a good spot for those in the neighborhood or even if you are driving by and have a few minutes to spare.
