Did you know that “cordata” can refer to a heart-shaped leaf, according to Wikipedia?

And if you search Cordata Community Park on cob.org/projects, you’ll see that with a bit of imagination, the master plan for the park property does look a little like a heart.

“Heart Park” could be a good name for Bellingham’s newest park. Or not.

Bellingham residents are invited to submit names for the park via e-mail, regular mail, or by dropping ideas in the wooden suggestion box in the Parks and Recreation Administration Office at 3424 Meridian St.

The park is on the east side of Cordata Parkway between Stuart and Horton roads in the Cordata Neighborhood.

The city’s Parks and Recreation Department is accepting ideas for names until Dec. 31. The City Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will select a name for the park from the pool of suggestions and recommend it to the City Council for final adoption in early 2017.

The city acquired the new 20-acre park in 2015 with voter-approved Greenways 3 Levy funds. The park master planning process is underway.

For information or to sign up for future notices, contact Jonathan Schilk, 360-778-7000 or go to cob.org.
