Willow Creek Park is a tranquil, 65-acre facility in Saginaw that contains a two-and-a-half mile jogging and bicycle path, numerous covered picnic sites, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts and several playground areas. Most evenings you’ll find people walking their dogs, kids flying their kites or playing with their friends — all unwinding after a busy day.

All that jazz -- The Local HS Jazz band
"Jazz bands don’t have conductors," "They have band leaders. The band takes its style from the drums and its time from the bass player."
even with acoustic challenges at the park, the orchestra sounded like it was performing in a music hall.
"We were very excited to be able to invite the local high school band to come and play,".
"Saginaw Parks and Recreation, and the city of Saginaw, support our youth. They’re the future. To us, the kids are the stars,"
