Pasadena’s newest park will soon be under construction
and the City of Pasadena needs YOU to help name it!
The Voting Survey is now closed. Submissions were accepted from
Monday, September 13 until 4:00 pm on Friday, September 24
The park, located at 701 East Union Street (between El Molino Avenue and Oak Knoll Avenue), will have open space for informal recreation, relaxation, and community gatherings; children’s playground with shade structures; public restrooms; a 48-space parking plaza; and a dog run.
Now through Friday, August 20, the City is accepting recommendations for the park’s official name. From these recommendations, City staff will compile a list of names that meet at least one of the four criteria listed below. From Monday, September 6 through Friday, September 17, a second survey will be posted asking the community to review the names and vote for their preferred choice.
Votes will be tallied and presented to the Recreation and Parks Commission for discussion and, subsequently, a recommendation of the park’s official name will be presented to City Council for its consideration.
Park Naming Criteria: The City will adopt a name for the new park that meets at least one of the criteria established in the City’s Public Park and Recreation Facility Naming Policy. The criteria are as follows:
- Geographical location of the park of facility;
- Natural or geological features proximate to the park or facility;
- Cultural or historical significance to the City or surrounding neighborhood;
- Name of an individual who has made a significant contribution to the community, country, state, or field of parks and recreation.
