Ann Arbor’s Foxfire North Park
Foxfire North Park is a neighborhood park in the Foxfire North neighborhood. My daughter played soccer at Foxfire North for a couple of season until she aged up to a larger field. In addition to the soccer field, it features a small play structure, swings, and half-court basketball.

Ann Arbor’s Foxfire North Park Profile
Ann Arbor’s Foxfire North Park is a neighborhood park that also includes a soccer field used by Ann Arbor Rec & Ed teams.
Foxfire North Park is best for younger kids since the structure is smaller. My favorite part of the structure was the double slide. Rather than a traditional side-by-side, each side flares out.
Throughout the park there are a couple of spinners with educational information. There is one about the planets and one about states.
My daughter enjoyed the monkey bars – even if she had to struggle to keep her feet off the ground.
If you want to take advantage of the basketball or soccer fields, be sure to bring your own ball.
Foxfire North is the perfect playground to visit for local residents or while you are at the park for a soccer game.
