The City of Bothell wants help from the community to name Bothell’s newest park, the former Wayne Golf Course purchased by the city in December. People can submit suggestions at www.bothellwa.gov/wayne or in person at city hall’s customer service desk until Feb. 28.

The Parks and Recreation Board will review name suggestions at their 7 p.m. meeting on March 8 at City Hall. The public is welcome to attend.

The Board will develop one or more recommendations for the city council members who are scheduled to consider park names at their April 3 council meeting at 6 p.m. in City Hall.

Park names must be based on a neighborhood or geographical identification, such as ”Royal Oaks Park”; a historical or cultural significance, such as “Park at Bothell Landing”; an individual, living or deceased, who has made significant land, monetary or civic contribution to the park system or gave their life while serving in the US military, such as “1st Lt. Nicholas Madrazo Memorial Park”; or a historical figure, such as “William Penn Park”.

Parks are named for a minimum of 25 years.

The new park is nearly 90 acres and contains rolling hills, walking paths, forested areas, the Sammamish River and Waynita Creek, and has plenty of local wildlife. It is adjacent to Blyth Park, the Sammamish River Trail and the Burke-Gillman Trail.
