The first park acquired by the Commission was Imerman Memorial park, a 96 acre facility, located at 3495 Midland Road. Imerman Memorial Park resided on property that was originally part of a land grant given by President Jackson in 1835 to Andrew Ure, a Scotland native who came to the Saginaw Valley in 1883. In 1955, the Saginaw Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) raised $15,000 to purchase 85 Acres of Andrew Ure's farm.
The amount raised for the purchase, included a $10,000 donation by friends and relatives to be given by Dr. Lewis Imerman as a memorial to his brother, Elliot, who died in 1949 at the age of 38. Elliot Imerman was a very conscientious citizen, active Democrat, lawyer, Circuit Court Commissioner, member of the military during World War II, Commander of American Legion Post #22, and President of the Saginaw Jaycees. In 1956, the Saginaw Jaycees deeded approximately 90 acres of property to Saginaw County for the development of Imerman Memorial Park.
In 1970, the Commission undertook the development of Imerman Memorial Park. The majority of development in the park began after 1973, which included a self guiding nature trail, parking lots, pavilions, basketball and tennis courts, baseball diamond, sand volleyball courts, bathroom facilities, a children's play area and a boat launch with access to the Tittabawassee River.
