What shall we name our new park?
We are almost finished with Phase 1 of the new park near Bailey Springs. You are invited to the grand opening on Saturday, November 10 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. – please join us.
We need your help naming our new park!
On September 4, the Davidson Board of Commissioners directed the livability board’s park subcommittee to develop several potential names based on natural features, history of park land, or location and to seek public input. At its September 18 meeting, the parks subcommittee of the livability board confirmed three potential names for the new park near Bailey Springs:
Plum Creek Park: the intermittent stream that runs through parkland is named Plum Creek. The Town of Cornelius and Mecklenburg County will soon begin construction on a greenway, to be called Plum Creek Greenway, that will connect through the park to the Kincaid Trail.
Oak Tree Park: TreesDavidson will be planting 70 trees, many of which will be oaks, as part of the November 10 grand opening for Phase I of the park. These trees will benefit and become home to many creatures, great and small.
Bartlette Creek Park: the park is located off of Bartlette Creek Drive. Naming parks based on location is often a standard practice to help with directions.
Once the community has had an opportunity to consider these options, the full livability board will review all public input and make a recommendation to the Davidson Board of Commissioners. The board of commissioners may choose to adopt a name for the park prior to the November 10 opening event.
