Play Kettering

Discover the power of Play
with Kettering Parks, Recreation & Cultural Arts

refresh logoDuring this difficult time for our community and world, PlayKettering is here for you! Refresh your mind and stretch your legs in one or all of our 21 parks. Our playgrounds are closed, but our walking paths and green spaces are open. Take a family walk, go for a run, kick a ball around or try a scavenger hunt. We encourage all visitors to make smart decisions regarding social distancing and be familiar with the CDC’s guidance on stopping the spread of COVID-19.

We’re all in this together! We hope spending time in our parks helps keep you and your family happy and healthy during this unprecedented time. We encourage everyone to:

  • Pack everything (including water) you’ll need during your park visit
  • Maintain at least six feet of social distance from other park visitors
  • Observe our parks ordinances
  • Enjoy the park with members of your own household only
  • Be prepared for limited restroom access
  • Keep off playground equipment (all playgrounds are currently closed)

Weather not cooperating? Don't worry - we've got plenty of ways to refresh your mind indoors, too. Our Rosewood Arts Centre staff has put together ideas for activities using materials found around the house, as well as a virtual trip through Rosewood Gallery.
