"Burns Park – Reach for Your Wallet"

Burns Park is one of the oldest and beautiful, of all Ann Arbor neighborhoods. Its close proximity to the University of Michigan, luxury housing and parks, attracts an interesting mix of young adults, families, and the well-to-do. College undergrads dominate the population, and area businesses reflect this. Health-oriented supermarkets, and fitness centers dot the streets, and the neighborhood is also home to a 5K run every November.

Since a ban in high rises was lifted in the mid-2000s, a series of luxury student high-rise apartments have been erected for those attending U of M. The older sections of the area maintain their gorgeous aged look, with many streest featuring a canopy of old growth trees. These neighborhoods are mostly home to the older affluent adults of the community.

The collegiate atmosphere still intermingles here though, especially near Packard and Hill, where classic homes intermingle with fraternity, sorority, and other student housing solutions. The park for which this neighborhood was named, offers hills for winter sledding as well as ball fields, jungle gyms and a fountain for summertime fun. Overall, it's a wonderful community with offerings for residents of all ages, but not all income brackets. Be prepared for high living costs in both housing and shopping in exchange for a vibrant historic community.
