It is Time to Name the Park

New Castle’s newest park will be completed this fall, and we need your help to name it! The new park, informally called the Sports Park, is located at the intersection of Castle Valley Boulevard and Clubhouse Drive. It will include tennis courts, pickleball courts a volleyball lawn and a playground. Drop off your entry at Town Hall, 450 W. Main Street; or mail PO Box 90, New Castle Co 81647; or email to Melody Harrison at mharrison@newcastlecolorado.org. Entries must be received by 5 pm, August 10, 2017.

The Town traditionally looks for names that reflect the town’s history, geography or other recognizable features. The Town also considers names of citizens who have made significant contributions to the community through volunteer or professional participation. Let your imagination run wild as you think of an appropriate name for this new and attractive addition to your community.
