Port of Seattle wants your vote on new names for parks along Duwamish River
The Port of Seattle unveiled new proposed names for the six new parks along the Duwamish River, and is asking the public to weigh in.
The port announced the top three names for each park Tuesday that reflect the cultural, historical and environmental significance of the river.
“It’s important these public parks have names that reflect their location and cultural significance,” said Fred Felleman, Port of Seattle Commission Vice President and tribal liaison.
The port partnered with the Seattle Parks Foundation to design and implement the renaming campaign.
“There are great opportunities here for our communities to select names that honor the heritage of the Duwamish River and elevate the indigenous history and culture of the region of the land we occupy,” said Rosario-Maria Medina, a community member involved in the naming process.
Voting is open until Sept. 30. Find out more information here.
