The Name Our Park Contest invites Delaware County residents to submit suggestions for the new County park being planned for the former Don Guanella School site in Marple Township.
The contest runs now through Tuesday, October 31, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.
If multiple people submit the selected name, a drawing of those submitting the same name will be held to determine the winner of the $250. All those submitting the name will be recognized by the County.
The Delaware County Parks and Recreation Board, the New Park Advisory Committee together with the Delaware County Parks and Recreation and Planning Department staff will review names submitted to ensure they meet the above criteria. The Board and the Committee will evaluate all submissions that meet the naming criteria and select their top 20 names.
Using the top 20 names, the Delaware County Council will then choose their preferred entry to name the park.
The County of Delaware has a written policy regarding the naming of County-owned properties:
We welcome park name submissions from all residents of Delaware County!
