Pittsfield Township Park Description

Pittsfield Township Park is a small park adjacent to the Ann Arbor Airport and the Pittsfield Township Senior Center. If your timing is right, your kids will be able to watch small planes take off and land at the airport while they are playing. 

The structure offers several slides – one twisty slide, one curved slide, and 2 side-by side slides. There was previously a tube slide but it has been removed between our original 2018 profile and our 2022 update.

Pittsfield Township Park - Structure - Twisty slide, tic tac toe, and broken bridge

My 12 year old was a big fan of their monkey bars. Not only were they tall enough for her to stay off the ground, the height of the bars changes. She did the more challenging direction where they increase in height.

The structure also includes a broken bridge, a tic tac toe board, and more.

The pavilion offers plenty of shaded seating and restrooms.

The park is crowded on summer evenings during the baseball season (early summer). Parking is difficult and the playground is filled with siblings and kids before and after their games. Rather than a picture of an empty field, I’m sharing a throwback picture of my daughter playing t-ball at Pittsfield Township Park.
