Seattle Parks and Recreation Seeks Names for Parks Along Thornton Creek
Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the public to submit potential names for four separate areas of park land in the Thornton Creek watershed in northeast Seattle, and for a new park in the 12th Avenue neighborhood.
The Thornton Creek parks were acquired parcel by parcel over more than 30 years, but have always been referred to as numbered portions of the Thornton Creek network or by a general "natural area" name. Parks intends to keep the "Thornton Creek" identifier in each of the new formal names.
Submit suggestions for names in writing to the Park Naming Committee by Thursday, March 3. The committee encourages people to consider the features of the park in the naming, including the wildlife habitat, flora and fauna. For full descriptions of the parks to be named, and details on how to submit suggestions, visit the Seattle Parks and Recreation web site.
