Less than Two Weeks to Go! Delaware County’s "Name Our Park" Contest Runs Through Oct. 31

All Delaware County residents invited to name new park at site of the former Don Guanella School

Just over one week remains for Delaware County residents to submit their idea for the name of the new 213-acre park being planned for the former Don Guanella School site in Marple Township.

The “Name Our Park” contest, launched in September, has received hundreds of suggestions and is set to close at 5:00 p.m. on Tues., Oct. 31

Delaware County Council is looking for a name that embodies the theme of “Community, in Nature” and resonates with the spirit of our community, fosters a sense of belonging, and creates an inspiring identity for the park for generations to come.

The resident who submits the winning name will receive $250 and be celebrated at a future unveiling, showcasing the name on the official park signage and materials.

How to Enter the Contest

To submit a name for consideration, go to, and complete the short entry form. The entry process takes less than five minutes! Just provide your park name, an explanation for your choice, and your contact information.

The contest is open to Delaware County residents of all ages. All submissions must be submitted online. Entries should reflect the values of our community, celebrate our County's rich heritage, culture, and natural resources, and inspire a sense of inclusivity and togetherness. Please note that only one submission per resident will be accepted. You can find the complete contest rules online at

We look forward to hearing from you. Best of luck!
