Kettering parks/Creating Community

Kettering residents are invited to help design and create two original works of art in Kennedy

The final installations will provide the community with a memorable and creative experience
that will remain in place for the public to enjoy for years to come.
We invite individuals of all ages and Kettering families to participate in Kettering Parks/
