Salt Lake City is taking suggestions for renaming the B Street Park between Third and Fourth avenues in the city's ongoing name-the-park contest to allow neighborhoods the opportunity to name their local green spaces.
Salt Lake City has a network of small, neighborhood parks, most of which are named after streets or are given numbers. But Lynn Zimmerman, an administrative assistant for Mayor Palmer DePaulis, said neighborhoods are recommending the parks be named in honor of prominent citizens.Two local parks were recently named Joseph Steenblik Park and Nellie Jack Park. Steenblik is a well-known Rose Park resident and Jack is a former state legislator.
Suggestions to rename the B Street Park can be sent to the "Name the Park Contest," Mayor's Office, City Hall, 324 S. State Street, Salt Lake City, 84111.
The mayor, a city council member and a Parks Department official will select a name from a list of suggestions.
