A gated fitness park will be opening  Sunday in Saginaw.

The park was created in 2010 by Mission in the City, a nonprofit connected with a Saginaw church, New Life baptist, after homes were demolished on the property.

The church wanted to help people in Saginaw have a safe place to get active.

Yvette Haynes is with Mission in the City. She said the park has a number of features.

“A pavilion, a quarter mile walking track, a toddlers playground, two full size basketball courts that can be converted to playing volleyball and lots of green area.”

Hanyes said the church wanted to help people in Saginaw have a safe place to get active.

“Our church back in 1999 did a community survey based on the needs of the people in the community and recreation was one of those areas, and so that became our mission, which is now a 501 C 3 community development arm of our church, where we get out the walls of the church and become externally focused.

Haynes said the park will be open to the public until October.
