Ask the City of Saginaw to install a new playground and splash pad at Willow Creek Park

The City of Saginaw is home to 20,000+ people, and growing every day! A large part of the population is families with young children. As a mom of two young children, I love to take them to the park and let them play. Saginaw has some great parks, particularly Willow Creek Park on the west side, and Highland Station on the east side. The large grassy areas allow for my children to run around and be active. What Saginaw doesn't have is PLAYGROUNDS.

When my children want to really spend some time playing at a park, we usually end up driving 20-40 minutes away to cities that have fantastic playgrounds. Our favorites are Chisholm Park in Hurst, Bicentennial Park in Southlake, and University Park in Fort Worth. Each of these very large parks include lots of outdoor recreation, from baseball fields, to large playgrounds and splash pads, to ponds and rivers for fishing.

Saginaw is a smaller city than those mentioned, but it is a GREAT one, and the citizens deserve a great park with many amenities to enjoy with their families.

First and foremost, the families of the community would like to see a large playground and splash pad installed at Willow Creek park.

I challenge the City Council to fund this project by fitting it in the budget or, if necessary, using some of the reserve funds. Give back to the community by reinvesting in the parks, and ultimately the citizens.

Thank you.
