The City of Ann Arbor has resolved the issue and the Market will run from June 18th – Sept 24th in the Zingerman’s Roadhouse parking lot each Thursday from 3-7pm.

Parks in Washtenaw County

Rolling Hills Water ParkRolling Hills Water Park

Memorial Day weekend signifies more than just the remembrance of departed veterans, but also as a non-meterological beginning to Summer. Most students are making their way through their final weeks of school, daydreaming about the possibilites this Summer offers. This is also the time when County Parks and Preserves open to the public. Soon, AADL will be offering a program called "Park and Read," which is simlar to the Museum Adventure Passes, that will be good for a free one-day admission to any Michigan State Park. Fortunately, Washtenaw County proudly boasts 12 parks and 16 preserves, including the ever popular Rolling Hills Water Park, which supplies the County with a great place to cool off, get together with friends and even play a round of disc golf.

Come and visit one of Washtenaw County's Parks or Preserves today!

Why Ann Arbor needs a photowalk?

RackhamRackham

... and Why you should be there?

Since this is my first post on the AADL blog, I contemplated on what would be the best way to catch your attention. And that was all I came up with. Instead, lets talk about the idea of a photowalk.

Describing the photowalk is as simple as breaking the words apart. Walking is a part of our daily routines. And for some, photography is too. The simple act of walking brings us in contact with what we see around us. Try and carry a camera, the next time you're taking a coffee break and see if you end up capturing a city about its way.

Capturing the place I am in gives me the feeling of a visual connection with it. I stop slightly longer to observe it but the wait is all but a drop in the ocean. I'm now slightly more aware of the intricacies of the city, I've come to love. Walk down East Liberty Street, venture down the Alley of Art and ponder at the verse by Carl Sandburg. See if you can make any sense of it or just enjoy the pure reasoning of having a beautiful verse hidden from sight.
