The Parks & Recreation Board has solicited names for the new park on the Yahara Riverfront for over a year and recommend the name Grand Crossing at the September 10 Parks & Recreation Board meeting. In accordance with city policy on the naming of new parks, there is a 30-day public input period, where we welcome your comments on the proposed name. The name derives from a reference in the book Monona in the Making to historical significance of the area and reference to site used by Native Americans. It also describes the stately appearance of the park.
Submit Feedback on our online form or email Parks & Recreation Director Jake Anderson email@example.com Feedback will be shared with the Monona City Council as whether to adopt the recommended name or choose a different name for the park.
