Ann Arbor’s Allmendinger Park

Allmendinger is a “destination” park that people visit from around Ann Arbor.Β With a shady playground, it is a great park for sunny summer days.

Allmendinger Park Description

Allmendinger Park was our second playground profile back in 2016. We revisited the park in 2021 while waiting for one of my daughter’s drivers-education drives. We have added some updated pictures, but the park is unchanged.

We frequented Allmedninger most often the summer before my daughter started preschool (2009). Her preschool held informal playdates at Allmendinger once a week. Due to construction in the area the following year, playdates were moved.

Allmendinger Park is a departure from your traditional main structure playground that is common today. Instead, it has several smaller apparatus including a Merry Go-Round. The Merry Go-Round is great for all ages, but IMO is safest when used by one age group at a time.

One of my daughter’s favorite features at Allmendinger was the climbing wall apparatus. It has two climbing walls and steps. She went up the walls and down the steps. This apparatus is definitely better for bigger kids. While my daughter could do climbing walls by age 3 or 4, she would have had more trouble descending from this apparatus.

There is one mini-structure at Allmendinger – two ways up leading to a small platform with three slides – a side-by-side racer slide and a single slide. Since it is so small, I didn’t count it as a structure in the profile above.

Allmendinger Park - Mini-Structure & Sand Table

There is also a standalone slide, a climbing “net”, and a “sand” table. On our visit in June 2021, the sand table had no sand in it. It probably fills with rain and would be a good option for splashing after a rain storm.

Allmendinger has several sports fields. When we were there for driving classes, we saw several groups on the baseball field and my daughter has previously played softball there. There are also tennis and basketball courts.
