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 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.)
Artist: Gerry Houghton
