June 3, 2021 SAGINAW, MI –Saginaw’s Splash Park, located in the Frank N. Andersen Celebration Park, 1830 Fordney Street, will be open this weekend with limited hours, just in time for the sizzling hot temperatures.   Splash Park will be open Friday, June 4, 12 pm to 6 pm and Saturday, June 5, 12 pm to 6 pm.

Hours  remain  limited  while  the  City  continues  hiring  Celebration  Park  Coordinators  for  the Splash  Park.  "We  are  hopeful  that  we  can  expand  the  weekly  hours  to  at  least  three  days  a  week, however  at  this  time  the  hours  are  limited  due  to  staffing.   We  understand  that  many  families  look forward to this free outdoor activity every summer.  After being closed throughout 2020, it's exciting to reopen the park and offer our citizens one of the most enjoyable outdoor recreational experiences in our area."  Phil Karwat, Director of Public  Services.

Residents who visit Celebration Park can enjoy a fun, FREE, recreational experience in a safe and accessible environment for people of all ages and abilities.   There are bathrooms and changing areas on site for guests.  The Splash Park also has a pool wheelchair available for use to offer greater accessibility for children with disabilities.  The 2021 summer season will feature favorite amenities such as  exciting  boulder  climbing  structures  of  various sizes  within  the  existing playscape  area. The  park also  includes  sidewalks  and  paths  for  those  who  love  to  walk,  with  many  added  benches  in  scenic locations along the way.  A pavilion area is available for picnics or those special summer celebrations.
