NCC Seeking A Name For The Ottawa River South Shore Riverfront Park

The National Capital Commission’s brand-new, Ottawa River South Shore Riverfront Park needs a new, less cumbersome name, and you can help. The NCC is inviting suggestions from the public to name the sweeping nine-kilometre-long green space that follows the river along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway.

According to the NCC guidelines, the park can be named after one of three things: 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, or; a local or regional figure who has contributed to the building of the Capital. The public can click find more information here: http://ncc-ccn.gc.ca/our-projects/

Applications close October 23rd. A shortlist of suggestions will be reviewed by a committee, and submitted to the full NCC board of directors for approval.
