Art poles are being added to Swift-Cantrell regularly and are commissioned by local artists around a theme. Currently, there are three sets in the park: near the pavilions, near the skatepark, and on the backside of the walking trail.
Kindness Rocks Garden
A Painted Rock Garden is colorful, whimsical, interactive art. The Rock Garden is installed with mostly plain, unpainted rocks. Some painted Rocks are scattered throughout to jumpstart the transformation. The Kindness Rocks Garden promotes community involvement of all ages and keeps people coming back to the park to watch the garden “bloom” with color.
Marietta Fence Gallery
The Annual M2R Fence Gallery is a curated installation, debuting in downtown Marietta before traveling to other cities in Cobb County. Kennesaw hosts the show annually in September.
Artistic manhole covers are continually being added throughout downtown Kennesaw by the KACC in collaboration with the Master Craftsman Program at Kennesaw State University. Check out the locations in Swift-Cantrell!
The 40,000 sq. ft, all-concrete skatepark consists of a Street League Skateboarding Foundation Certified Skate Plaza, flow course and bowl. There is no charge to use the facility.
The 18,500 square foot space is lined with turf making it accessible to everyone. This is one of the largest Inclusive Playgrounds in the state. The playground now features five (5) play structures, swings and a pavilion. Playground will close at dark.
