Two stars might be a little harsh, but...the park is tiny, tightly surrounded by housing, and the lakes are small with limited views. Given that UM's Saginaw Forest trailhead is literally a few hundred yards down Wagner, I don't see stopping here unless you have a strong desire to see the First and Second Sister Lakes (or "Lakes") after seeing the Third in Saginaw Forest. Scio Forest is also nearby and offers a better nature experience, as does Lillie Park.
I'd leave this one for the neighborhood joggers and school field trips. Higher resolution versions of my pictures, as well as pictures of the other parks mentioned, are at https://johnmetzler.smugmug.com/Parks.

This is less of trail and more of swampy area. But the lakes are pretty good.
