New park finally gets a name

New park finally gets a name

Times-Chronicle Staff

Oliver’s newest park is no longer the park with no name.

Town council is expected to choose a name on Monday during its regular meeting.

Staff have recommended the new park be called Riverside Park as per the town’s Outdoor Public Space Naming Policy that places a priority on naming parks after nearby geographical features. The other option in this case is Bridge Park.

Construction of the new park was recently completed, featuring benches, tables, a bike repair station, a water bottle filling station and a beautiful handcrafted statue of The Salmon Chief by Smoker Marchand.

Randy Houle, director of development services, said other potential names have come forward, including “Bill Ross Park” (a long-time contributor to Oliver who died this year). Naming the park after an individual must be accompanied by a petition of support from the neighbourhood.

Staff also received the options “Spirit Salmon Municipal Park” and “Oliver Spirit Salmon Park.”
