What better way to relax on a nice fall evening with the Indian Riffle Pond and some Goat Yoga? That’s correct, Goat Yoga! And no, we aren’t “kidding.” These goats will have you laughing, smiling and not so intimidated by yoga when they’re done with you. Preregistration is required for this program. Visit the Goat Yoga homepage to learn more and sign up


Visit a favorite park

According to our recent community survey, Kettering’s favorite parks are Delco Park, Indian Riffle Park and Lincoln Park Civic Commons. It’s easy to see why! All three parks feature fishing ponds and playgrounds, plus plenty of space for a walk or jog. The summertime weather is making a comeback this weekend, so be sure to enjoy some outdoor time.
