Located in the middle of Saginaw, I spent countless hours here as a kid. There is fishing and you can launch a boat here. Walk around the island with a bag of popcorn to feed the geese and seagulls. Kids love this place.

Always nice to just cruise around the circle...Sometimes we get out and play down by the river side and the trees. Kids just love to run. Or we bring a picnic and enjoy some shade time.

This is a great park on it's own little island, so lush and green. A great place to kick back and have a picnic.

I guess it's nice if you want to have a quiet picnic, walk your dog, or sit somewhere and contemplate life. Not much to see besides geese, water, willow trees. But it is clean and tranquil.

Ojibway Island is a nice park to go during the day and walk a dog. Sometimes, they have baseball games where players dress up like old-time teams.

This is a great little getaway from the hustle of the city. It's quaint and quiet. They have a nice little walking path that you can use to catch some fresh air. I hope you take the opportunity to enjoy it.

On a non event day it is just a park. Has a walking path that some perceive as not always safe. I have no reason to go there. There are many parks around the Great Lakes Bay Region that have more. When there are events...More

Free one day Christian Concerts. This year the line up included Red, Danny Gokey (from American Idol) and Crowder. The concerts are outside but there is plenty of shade. They also have a rock wall and inflatable slides for the kids. You can bring a...More
