Members of the public are encouraged to submit ideas to the city’s Parks Commission for a park-naming contest for a park near the Hazelwood Gardens area.

The commission will consider the entries and ultimately recommend a name for the park, located on the west side of Newcastle at S.E. 80th St. and 113th Ave. S.E., to the City Council. Entries are due to the commission by 5 p.m. Jan. 31.

The site is about .15 acres or 100 feet by 60 feet, has small native plantings and pine trees and includes picnic tables, benches and a gravel pathway.

The naming of park spaces should be based on the site’s relationship to certain criteria, including natural or geographic features, historical ties or features, individuals (living or deceased) who have made significant contributions to the park system, individuals who have contributed civic service to the city or neighborhood or common usage identification qualities.

Call Parks Program Manager Michael Holly at 649-4444, ext. 142 or email him at for more information.
