There is great fun to be had and lots to do for all the family at one of Kettering’s top parks. The award winning bowls green and crazy golf course will be open from 2pm daily. Come swing, slide and twist your way around the ever exciting playground, winding BMX track area and natural play space, or stay for a gentle workout in the impressive outdoor gym.

Guy Holloway, Head of Corporate & Cultural Services at Kettering Borough Council, said: 

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to come and soak up the music in the sun. Nine top quality bands and performers will once again help raise funds for a very good cause at the Cransley Hospice. The playground, BMX zone and gym area mean there is something for everyone. With the sun shining and the music playing, the Pleasure Park really is the place to be this summer.”
