The following motion was put forward by Commissioner Barnes:
Whereas the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation has a practice of naming our parks after people who have made significant contributions to the citizens of Vancouver;
Whereas information regarding the nature of those contributions is not easily available to people enjoying our parks;
Whereas this information would be of interest to our park users, will add to social cohesion and cross-cultural understanding and contribute to the historical understanding of our parks;
Therefore be it resolved that staff explore opportunities of embedding information regarding park names into the fabric of our parks; potentially through such strategies as engraved boulders, signage, recycled materials etc.
