The City’s park naming guidelines provide several steps that are normally followed during the park naming process.  First, a list of potential park names is compiled from suggestions submitted by the public, City staff, and the developer.  The suggestions are then forwarded to the Community Services Commission for review.  The Commission has the option to review the names as an entire body or through a sub-committee prior to making a final recommendation to the full Commission.  The Commission’s final recommendation is then reviewed by the City Council for final adoption.


The development of The Preserve area includes the construction of a number of public facilities and parks required to support the development.  As conditioned by The Preserve Development Agreement, the developers are required to design and construct the specific facilities and parks in-lieu of paying development impact fees for these facilities. 


Unlike other City park development projects, the park sites in The Preserve are designed and constructed prior to residents moving into the neighborhoods adjoining the proposed park sites.  In those cases, the parks are being constructed prior to or during construction of the adjacent tracts in order to have the parks completed when the model homes open to the public.  As part of the design process, the developer selects park names that coincide with the housing tract development as part of their desire to develop inclusive communities.



Lewis Operating Company (LOC) is currently under development for a three-acre park located in The Preserve.   This park is being developed as part of the Discovery Village project, located on Discovery Avenue.  This Park proposes exciting new types of amenities unique to The Preserve, including an obstacle course, discovery loop, cross-circuit training ground, and dog park.  The park is anticipated to open in late 2020.


The name being proposed by LOC for this park is Discovery Park, which is in line with the themed development and street names already approved in The Preserve.  Per the policy attached, the name of the park should enhance the identity of the surrounding area.  The Community Services Commission met on April 22, 2019, and voted unanimously in favor of recommending this name to the City Council for adoption.
