Name Your Park Contest

Name Your Park Contest

The City of Cape Coral is asking for the community’s help in naming the Gator Circle neighborhood park. 

The park is expected to open later this year and the City is looking for name suggestions for the park that include at least one of several elements listed below:

  • History, culture and people of Florida (especially of SWFL or Cape Coral)
  • The natural environment and native plants and animals of Florida and especially SWFL (and/or Cape Coral)
  • Notable events or achievements that are associated with Florida and especially SWFL (and/or Cape Coral)
  • The neighborhood, community, or physical location of the park
  • Founders, leaders, heroes, symbols, and fundamental principles of our nation

The name must also be brief, pronounceable, memorable, distinct, and dissimilar from the name of any other nearby park.

If you have an idea that you would like to submit for consideration you can do so on the City of Cape Coral’s website starting on Monday, January 24.  The deadline to submit is Friday, January 28 at 5:00 p.m. 

“I’m looking forward to having the community involved with naming the park,” said Kerry Runyon, Director of Cape Coral Parks & Recreation, “the park will become a central part of the Gator Circle community once it opens, so it’s logical that they have a voice in what it will be called.”

Cape Coral Celebrates July as “National Park and Recreation Month”

The City of Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department is joining municipalities from across the country to celebrate July as National Park and Recreation Month.

Initiated by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and celebrated in July since 1985, this annual observation recognizes all the ways parks and recreation can transform people’s daily lives.  From providing places to play and stay healthy, to fostering new relationships and forging a connection with nature, Cape Coral’s park and recreation facilities provide essential services and improve local quality of life.

Cape Coral Parks and Recreation is offering a variety of activities throughout the month ranging from Red, White & BOOM and a free Kids’ Fishing Tournament, to a free Ice Cream Social, “Bob Ross” Paint-Along and Family Open House. 

See a Parks and Recreation Month Activity Calendar with dates, times and more information at www.CapeParks.com

In addition, Cape Coral Parks and Recreation is hosting a “Share Your Parks & Rec Story Sweeps” on Facebook from July 1-27.

Three random winners will be selected to receive $100 Parks and Recreation gift cards.

Furthermore, a proclamation signed by Cape Coral Mayor John Gunter designating July as “Park and Recreation Month” and an art display highlighting parks and recreation moments will be on display on the first floor of Cape Coral City Hall from July 7-22. There will be free boat trailer parking offered at the City’s public boat ramps the weekend of July 24-25, and Coral Oaks Golf Course will offer PGA Family Golf Month specials all month long to encourage affordable family bonding on the golf course. (Visit www.CoralOaksGolf.com for details.)

“National Park and Recreation Month recognizes the vast opportunities that parks and recreation provide for children and adults,” said Kerry Runyon, Director of Cape Coral Parks & Recreation. “Participation in leagues, organized activities, playgrounds and walking through parks for a leisurely social activity is what we are all about in Parks and Recreation.”
