Tuebingen Park Description
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. Tweens, teens, and even adults can get a workout on the fitness equipment – particularly in the middle of a walk or run. 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. These were much better for her height.
She also enjoyed challenging herself on the slanted bar. She was able to travel up the slope.
