Carson City seeks ideas for names of open spaces

The Carson City Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department invites all citizens interested in the official naming of six open space acquisitions to respond to a survey with proposed nominations, or to provide additional suggestions.
The subject properties are located throughout Carson City. Please refer to the map on our website for each property location.
The property descriptions, maps and survey can be found on the Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department’s website at The policies and procedures for naming Open Space properties suggest that proposed and adopted names should provide some form of individual identity to the property.
If possible, names should be related to the unique natural landscape, geographic or topographic features, indigenous plants, or wildlife, cultural or historical heritage. The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California were invited to review a map of unnamed Open Space properties and provide naming suggestions for properties and places that are important to their culture and history. With their participation and the potential adoption of official names, Carson City will be able to better recognize and celebrate the history of the Washoe Tribe throughout our region. These nominations have been noted in the survey.
Survey results must be received no later than 5 p.m. on April 12. The survey results and recommendations will be discussed at the Open Space Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, April 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the Robert “Bob” Crowell Board Room. A final recommendation to name the open space properties will ultimately go to the Carson City Board of Supervisors for final approval and adoption.
