Ashley Park is located at West 3rd Street and Oak Drive. The area was originally a curved dirt road called Ashley Avenue for one block. The road led to the Wayne County Fairgrounds and was surrounded by a small grove of ash trees for which the park is now named.

It is designed as a neighborhood playground and picnic park.
