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 DOWNTOWN area!
In order to get this BADGE, you'll have to visit some of the beautiful Downtown 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 places or has construction season foiled all your park exploring plans?? No worries! Contact us for a handy guide to get your CODES!

Hanover Square Park isn’t part of this badge?
Unfortunately not! While Hanover Square Park is definitely beloved, a small amount of city parks were omitted from the Park Explorer badge series for a variety of reasons and Hanover Square Park was one of them! That being said, PLEASE feel free to visit Hanover Square Park and show it some LOVE! Also, thanks for playing! :)
Google Maps street view is a good way to keep cool and get most (if not all) of the clues.
I'm having a little trouble finding out who adopted Sculpture Plaza Park and I am unable to go to the location.
I went to sculpture plaza park and took multiple photos of the sign. No where on the sign (and no combination of words) gave me the code. I texted the library help number, but was getting an error message.
