Wanted Name for City Park ~ SD Union, July 6, 1910

SAN DIEGO UNION
JULY 6, 1910, 5:1

WANTED NAME FOR CITY PARK: BOARD DOES NOT LIKE “CABRILLO”

Commissioners Wright and Luce oppose suggestion of architect Parsons, selection is postponed; name proposed by public will be considered at next meeting of Board. O’Hallaran seems to be in favor of Parsons’ suggestion. Senator L. A. Wright thinks the name of Marston would be more appropriate; also thinks Sierra, suggesting a high ridge or ravine, would be a good name. Judge Luce thinks Ocean View or Bay View or Spanish name suggestive of the same would be suitable. Wright and Luce finally agreed that the public should be consulted. Parsons’ report was ordered filed with the understanding that it shall be taken up for consideration at an early date.
