The City of Kennesaw and partners from Kennesaw State University hung signage introducing Gateway Park, the city’s newest development to the community.

The sign was designed by KSU’s Art Department and was hung at the corner of Sardis and Main Streets at the South entry point of downtown Kennesaw.

“The sign is the first step in connecting parks and trails to the downtown district,” said Darryl Simmons, zoning administrator for the City of Kennesaw. “The pocket park will be highlighting public art which is the result of a wonderful partnership with Kennesaw State University and the City of Kennesaw.”

Gateway Park will be equipped with a trailhead plaza and bike racks, a multi-use trail, shade structures, benches and a circular garden.

“This is the third installation done by the City in conjunction with the Kennesaw State’s Art Department,” said Robert Fox, the director of Economic Development. “We have plans to continue to collaborate with KSU to bring additional art installations to downtown Kennesaw.”
