Folks often run with their dogs here or come to sit on a bench after getting ice cream from the nearby Washtenaw Dairy. Home to what is believed to be one of the oldest Oak Trees in Ann Arbor.
Festival: The Old West Side Children's Festival happens here once a year on a Sunday in late May or early June. Signs are posted in the park a week before the festival.
