Longshore Park – Tuesday Playground Profile

Playgrounds are currently closed due to the COVID-19 stay at home order.

They are not safe. Skate Parks, Athletic fields, and other facilities including bathrooms are closed. Most park trails are still open for walking and cycling. Please be sure to maintain social distance while in the parks.

We visited Ann Arbor’s Longshore Park Playground as part of our #MyTownMyPrius exploration of Ann Arbor sponsored by Toyota USA.

Each week Ann Arbor with Kids is profiling a different playground in the Ann Arbor area including Ann Arbor, Saline, Ypsilanti, Dexter, etc. Today we are profiling Ann Arbor’s Mixtwood Pomona Park Playground.
