Names Wanted for Our Riverside Park

The NCC is asking for names for their newly planned riverside park. Currently it is known as the Ottawa River South Shore Riverfront Park, which is descriptive but not too catchy.

They want names which are, in their words:

  • A person of national stature who has made a substantial contribution to the building of Canada and its identity in the world, or to an aspect of Canadian culture worthy of special recognition.
  • A place or event with a significant historical or cultural legacy in Canada.
  • A local or regional figure who has contributed to the building of the Capital.

Submit your suggestions by October 23rd on the NCC’s web site (which also has more information about the park, and naming rules – Toponymy is the word of the day) at:



By the way, Dan Wilcock volunteered at the last board meeting to represent our community on the NCC’s naming committee. Thanks Dan!
