Paw Patrol at Kenny Park
- Published: 17 August 2022 17 August 2022
Join the Kenny Neighborhood Association and the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board for our end-of-summer movie in the park on Friday, September 2! This year's movie is Paw Patrol so watch along as Ryder and the pups are called to Adventure City to stop Mayor Humdinger from turning the bustling metropolis into a state of chaos.
Bring a blanket or chairs to Kenny Park, swing by the KNA table for free popcorn (huge thanks to Kenny Park for sponsoring!), and find a cozy spot in the park before the movie starts around 8:05pm!

Sustainable & Alternative Lawn Seminar

Are you interested in pollinator and rain gardens but don’t know where to start? Tired of the constant upkeep of your lawn?
If you have an interest in beautifying your outdoor space and making it more environmentally friendly, join KNA’s Environmental Committee for a seminar with Jason Rathe of Field Outdoor Spaces, and learn about projects of all sizes to help transform your yard! The fun happens Wed, Aug 17 from 6:30-7:30pm.
We'll be outdoors in the Kenny Elementary pollinator garden if weather permits (southeast corner of the building). In case of rain, we'll move inside to the Kenny Recreation Center building (1328 W 58th St).
