NCC invites naming suggestions for new riverside park along SJAM Parkway

By the Ottawa Citizen, October 10, 2018

The National Capital Commission’s brand-new Ottawa River South Shore Riverfront Park needs a new, and hopefully more elegant, name and you can help.

The NCC is inviting suggestions from the public to name the sweeping nine-kilometre-long green space that follows the river along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway.

According to the NCC guidelines, the park can be named after one of three things:

  • a person of national stature who has made a substantial contribution to the building of Canada and its identity in the world, or to an aspect of Canadian culture worthy of special recognition;
  • a place or event with a significant historical or cultural legacy in Canada, or;
  • a local or regional figure who has contributed to the building of the Capital.
