And the new park name is...

Last night, by a vote of 4 to 1, the Santa Monica City Council voted to name the park formerly known as Palisades Garden Walk as:

 

TONGVA PARK

 

The name honors the area’s original inhabitants and highlights their culture. Upon naming, Councilmembers remarked that the new park will be a singular place on this planet and therefore deserves a singular name, one that will reintroduce the Tongva culture and the history.
