Ann Arbor Skatepark Meeting
There will be a meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, April 2, from 6:30-8:00pm at Abbott Elementary School (2670 Sequoia Parkway). This is a joint meeting of the City of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation Services Unit and The Ann Arbor Skatepark Action Committee. We will be making a presentation on why Ann Arbor needs a skatepark, and why Veterans Memorial Park is the best location for it.

For more information on this meeting, see the A2 Skatepark website.



  1. In regards to the Huron River Drive Project, I did hear that the Dexter-Ann Arbor Run might not be able to go downtown this year because of the construction. They’ve proposed changing the route so it goes to Skyline High.

    There’s a little about this on the run website, but not much.
