Name The Park

Park campaign-820x360-webbanner-v2 (1)

In 2019 the Hyattsville City Council began the process of removing offensive and segregationist language from the original deed for Hyattsville’s Magruder Park. The park will be officially renamed in 2021 to reflect its current use as a welcome gathering place for all.

We can’t do this without you!

Help the City Council identify a new name for the park that is inviting, inclusive, and unifying. Creativity is encouraged and anyone can submit! You can send your suggestions in the following ways:

  1. Fill out this online suggestion form
  2. Complete and mail the suggestion form mailed with the October edition of the Hyattsville Reporter (green mailer)
  3. Pick up a paper suggestion form at the suggestion box located by the Magruder Park Recreation Center, 3911 Hamilton Street
  4. Call (301) 985-5039 and leave a message with your suggestion(s)

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 15, 2020.

Submissions will be reviewed by the City’s Race and Equity Task Force and Health, Wellness, and Recreation Advisory Committee. The top name options will be presented to City Council for consideration in early 2021.
