County Farm Park in Ann Arbor

Looking for a new park to try out? Try County Farm Park in Ann Arbor!
Located in Ann Arbor, off 23, it is a quick drive and a great place to spend a day!
The playground is a designed to look like a farm and has five distinct play areas. The entire play area has a padded ground designed to look like farm fields and a river, complete with real boulders to climb on.

The large play structure has a lot to offer. It has numerous slides, a rock wall, different types of ladders and many tunnels and bridges to explore. The most popular parts this day were the rope for climbing up and down and the smaller zip line!

There is a separate (but still okay for bigger kids) area with four farm animals to rock on, a barn to play in and a large tractor structure to explore. This area has soft grass for safety.
There are four swings, two of which are handicapped accessible.

And there's still more! Off to one side are galvanized feed troughs filled with sand and a whole sand "beach" area for play. (It appears there are also tubs for water play, although these weren't filled on our visit.).

There is also a rope climbing structure that is a blast!

Near the playground is a Children's Discovery Garden just getting ready for the season.
There are shaded areas and benches to sit and watch your kiddos play. There are real bathrooms and a large pavilion for eating. The playground is part of a nature area, so there are wooded areas and trails to explore.
County Farm Park is open from 8:00 AM until dusk. Use 2230 Platt Road as the address when accessing directions. You do pass through a retail area with lots of options to grab some food or a coffee!

We are already planning our next trip!

Emily is a homeschooling mom who loves exploring with her daughter!
