Friends of Ballard Corners Park

Vote Now for a new Name for the Park! (Or keep the old)

OK, people, this is it! (Drum roll, please.)

I know that many of you expressed an opinion earlier, but I want your final vote on a name for Ballard Corners Park after having seen all the suggestions. Even if you replied earlier, please reply again.

To vote, just email with your favorite name. Entries are due by tomorrow evening (26 Feb at 6 PM), so I can forward the community’s preference onto Parks and Recreation Superintendent Ken Bounds before he retires on Wednesday.

By the way, the article in the Ballard News Tribune generated three calls and zero emails.
