Yearly Park Winterization
The period for the yearly winterization for parks is from November 1 – April 15. All park water fountains will be turned off; the fountains at Lincoln Park Civic Commons will be turned off; and all non-heated restrooms will be closed during that time.
You’re welcome to continue to enjoy the parks throughout the fall and winter months, but please plan accordingly in light of this winterization process.
Prugh Woods Development
A roadway off East Dorothy Lane has been developed into the Prugh Woods Development, creating access to the Kettering Recreation Center. Kettering Parks department is clearing invasive plants and trees that have been affected by the Emerald Ash Borer and will be replanting over 230 native specimen trees to regrow that area. Feel free to call the Parks Maintenance office with any questions you might have: 937-296-2486.
Fishing in Kettering’s Parks
Bundle up and enjoy some crisp weather fishing! You can fish for free without a fishing license at the ponds at Delco Park, Lincoln Park, Pondview Park, and the Kettering Recreation Complex.
Please throw all fish back into the water, and please do not cast nets. Enjoy!
