Foxfire North Description
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 half-court basketball court 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.
