An Insider's Guide to Waterloo Region

Interesting places on and off the beaten track

“Moments” by Gerry Houghton at McLennan Park

McLennan Park, Kitchener

The newest sculptures in the City of Kitchener are far more interesting than the infamous “worm” in front of the courthouse on Frederick Street. The Pedestrian on the parking garage at Charles and Benton Streets is easily understood as is this new art in McLennan Park on Ottawa Street in Kitchener. The park officially opens tomorrow and the festivities and events are detailed here.

(McLennan Park , 901 Ottawa St. South, on Saturday, Aug. 13, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)

Title: Moments
Year: 2011
Artist: Gerry Houghton
Medium: Aluminum
“Moments”, the new public art work at McLennan Park, is a 5-metre tall aluminum sculpture. Four figures are grouped together: cyclist, skateboarder, walker, and ice skater, to celebrate the spirit of recreation at McLennan Park.
