PHOENIX — No, you can’t throw out all of your hilarious suggestions on what the name of a park should be, but you do have an opportunity to change what people will call a public area in the future.

Queen Creek, Arizona, has offered up a “Name Your Park” chance to the public for the West Park site at 196th Street and Appleby Road.

The park, which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2018, will likely be named at the Queen Creek Town Council meeting on Oct. 4.

People can send in their suggestions for names to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee (PRAC) through Aug. 18.

Accepted names are required to adhere with geographical location; natural or geological features close by; cultural or historical significance to the town or neighborhood; a family name of someone who has made a significant contribution to the community, country, state or the field of parks and recreation; or use of the park.

Along with a name submission, people must explain their suggestion too.
