Ann Arbor’s Tuebingen Park Profile
Ann Arbor’s Tuebingen Park is a small park with fitness activities.
Tuebingen Park is not a great choice for younger kids since it does not have traditional playground features. Still younger kids can enjoy the balance beam and swinging on some of the lower bars.
Tweens and Teens will enjoy challenging themselves on the fitness equipment. It was perfect for my 13 year year old who is too tall for the monkey bars at most playgrounds.
She also enjoyed challenging herself on the slanted bar. She was able to travel up the slope.
The park does not have sports fields, but it does have open space for kids to run.
Tuebingen is a short walk (1/4 mile) from Traverwood library and is on the bus route.
