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... read more

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.

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 it does get crowded.

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 cooler for food and drinks or they have vendors on the island.

Enjoy a trip around the island in your vehicle to enjoy a few minutes of the trees, wildlife (squirrels, birds, geese, possum, seagulls, etc). Great place to take a stroll, go jogging, even ride a bike along the paved driveway. View the Saginaw River and the skyline of Old Town Saginaw area. Plenty of picnic tables to eat lunch with...

This park has four season access and four season interest. Walking the 2/3 mile lap or the half mile or so from bridge to bridge is a nice way to take a break from the day. There are no historical markers from the lumber days but there is a boulder to the first mass there. Summer concerts and fireworks are... More

Ojibway has been a nice peaceful resort for me just to get away from it all. Clear my thoughts of the days stress & to come up with new ideas for future projects!
