Grow a Park, Grow a Community and Connect People

ABOUT Saginaw Green 

Green spaces do more than soften the concrete urban landscape, but also provide places to congregate, commune, and grow.  Downtown Pontiac’s first urban green space built in many years promises to support the communities growing resident and business population.

THE PROJECT

Located just south of The Lafayette Grand and across the street from the WKC building, the park resides as a pocket between two existing buildings at 111 N. Saginaw Street.

Vacant land considered blight was acquired by the Pontiac Downtown Business Association (now known as Main Street Pontiac).

PHASE TWO
