The new 148-acre park is located along Grange Hall Road, between Patterson and Shakertown Roads, according to a press release from the city of Beavercreek’s spokesperson.

Residents can submit name ideas until Friday, October 28th, on the city website.

The city has laid out guidelines for what names will not be accepted;

  • If the proposed name is after a person or organization
  • The name undermines the public’s confidence in the city’s impartiality
  • It interferes with the efficient delivery of city services or operations
  • If the name is the same as an existing school site or public facility

Park staff will work alongside the city’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Board to review submissions, the release said.

Once the board has gathered a list of possible names, Beavercreek’s City Manager and City Council will make the final decision, the spokesperson said.

On Wednesday, October 26th, a public forum will be held for the new park from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The release said residents will have a chance to review concept plans, ask questions and provide feedback at the meeting.

If residents cannot attend the meeting, there will be future opportunities to provide input and people can find announcements on the city’s social media pages and website, the spokesperson said.

“We believe it is important to include residents in the naming process,” Beavercreek City Manager, Pete Landrum, said. “We want them to have a say and feel proud of this park, as well as the city they chose to call home.”
