Name the Park, Become Famous, Get the Girl (or guy)


Ok, not really. But wouldn’t it be awesome to have a hand in naming a park that will become a landmark in downtown Houston for generations to come? Or at least until someone builds townhomes over it.

The Houston Downtown Park Conservancy is running a contest to name the new Downtown Park being built in… well… Downtown. The name of this 12 acre park will be a decision by committee, er, community. And you get to help! You can vote online or by phone at 713-238-8125. So get off your lazy butt and take part in more than freeway traffic! Scour your knowledge of Houston’s rich history and come up with something, or someone, worthy of becoming a plot of grass in the shadow of the GRBCC.

Again, vote online or by phone at 713-238-8125. Deadline for votes is September 18th, 2006.

Being the impartial media outlet that I am (ha!) I cannot try and influence your vote, but others have good ideas.

Have a good idea of your own? Tell us in the comments! Maybe someone will vote for it. Maybe I’ll post about it again. Gasp! Maybe it will win. And then you’ll be famous. And you’ll get the girl. Or guy.
