Frisinger Park Description
I never really noticed Frisinger park despite driving down Stadium Blvd many times over the years. While Frisinger Park’s address is Stadium Blvd, the playground and softball field are set towards the back of the park. Woodbury runs on the east side of the park and offers street parking.
My daughter loved the standing design of the seesaw at Frisinger Park. As an only child, she even found a way to make it work solo.
The playground structure itself is somewhat unique. Instead of the a typical roof, it has a series of concentric circles leaving the top of the structure open.
It also offers several ways to climb to the structure and a climbing wall.
The sandbox has partial shade at some times of day and features a cute turtle seat.
Beyond Frisinger Park
With a location on E. Stadium one block east of Industrial, Frisinger Park is just a few blocks from Michigan Stadium and Crisler Center.
Cool off after your park visit with a trip to Dairy Queen (Packard Rd just south of Stadium)
When we first profiled Frisinger Park, it included a discussion on how close it was to Lucky’s Market. When my daughter had softball games and practices, we would often get dinner there or shop while she was at practice. Once redevelopment of the space happens, Frisinger Park will be close to it.
