The City of Ann Arbor has a LOT of parks, so we've broken them up into convenient groups! For this badge, you'll be in the NORTHSIDE area!
In order to get this BADGE, you'll have to visit some of the beautiful Northside sites and find the main sign for each park! Your codes will all be based off the sign itself or the nearby surrounding area!
Some of these are neighborhood parks with little to no parking. Please be respectful of the neighbors of these parks, and PLEASE be safe and aware of traffic when seeking out these park signs! You've got all summer to find these, so no rush!
Below are the SPECTACULAR places this badge will lead you to with the links to the city pages for each park in alphabetical order, and here's a map to help you find each sign. Use this map to know EXACTLY where each sign is! Street addresses and google maps can be misleading! Plan your own route and be careful!
Can't make it to these parks or has construction season foiled all your park exploring plans?? No worries! Contact us for a handy guide to get your CODES!

Can’t get the bandemer badge - have the first two parts and have tried all the possible bolts...help?
There are more than 11 bolts and less than 13! :) Be sure you are not spelling out the number! You code should be 8 letters followed by the number. Let us know if you need more help and THANKS FOR PLAYING!
We have tried that one multiple times, starts with a B and ends with an R then the number, have tried all uppercase, all lowercase, no spaces… What are we doing wrong?
We'll send you an email with your code so you can move on the the next park! Sorry for the trouble!
Does the Bandemer sign off Barton work or is it only the sign off Main? We didn't see any letters over the emblem on the Barton sign.
Hi @kathscot, you'll need the sign off of Long Shore (very close to Main) for this one. A lot of the parks have different signs at various entrances and we had to pick one for each! Let us know if you don't want to return to the park and we can send you the code. THANKS for playing!
I couldn't find the Leslie park sign. I'm not sure if I was looking in the right spot, but I didn't spot it.
Hi @lakeabigail, the Leslie Park sign you're looking for is on Leslie Park Circle, near softball field #3. If you still can't find it or don't want to return, just let us know and we can send you the code! Thanks for playing!
Okay I will check again thanks!
The Kuebler Langford Park sign should only have 8 letters if the clue is correct in saying "the first line". You have to go to the second line for the two additional letters in the code. :/
Hi @Xris, it looks like you might have found a different Kuebler Langford sign than the one we used on our map. If you weren't able to figure out the code just let us know and we'll be happy to email it to you! THANKS for playing!
Is the Bandemer sign up because I could not find it.
Hi @nikebrand, the sign should be up but we'll email you the code, so keep an eye on your inbox!
