Scheffler Park – Tuesday Playground Profile

This profile of Scheffler Park is part of our Summer Series: Tuesday Playground Profiles

Each week Ann Arbor with Kids is profiling a different playground in the Ann Arbor area. Playgrounds will be selected from Ann Arbor, Saline, Ypsilanti, Dexter, etc. This summer my daughter has played a few softball games at Scheffler Park, including one last night. We spent some time after her game exploring the playground.

Scheffler Park Playground Review

Scheffler Park is a neighborhood park in Ann Arbor, but with a convenient location along Platt Rd. It had been a couple of years since I was last at Scheffler Park. Since our last visit, the structure has been replaced. The park has a single play structure which has both a small double slide and a twisty slide. The play structure also has a rope bridge and a leaf climber.

In addition to the play structure and swings, there is a see-saw and a spinner cage. My daughter really enjoyed the spinner cage.
