This photo, taken in Jan. 17, shows the installation of two turf fields at Mountain View MS (foreground) and the Champions Too field (upper left).
Construction is underway near Aloha's Mt. View Middle School to develop a 21.5-acre neighborhood park.
We've referred to this park as "Southwest Community Park" during initial outreach, but now we need to give the park a permanent name, one that recognizes, commemorates, and honors Washington County's history — from the time of its original inhabitants until today — with a name that is respectful, representative and in alignment with public support. Until January 15, we invite you to submit your thoughtful suggestions for a name (in accordance with our naming policy) that:
Represents a long established local relationship and/or attachment to the park, to the human or natural history of Washington County, or to land under or near to the park
Lends dignity to the park for all past, present, and future residents of Washington County
Represents this park's role as a site for accessible and inclusionary recreation
Represents THPRD's mission and values as an agency that serves all community members
Avoids any attribution that is derogatory, offensive or otherwise controversial.
