City invites public to name new Far Eastside park

New York has Central Park. Phoenix has Encanto Park. New Orleans has City Park; and now residents can help name the newest park in far East El Paso.

Situated in the upper Eastside and boasting more than 90 acres, this new public space is primed to become an exciting regional destination for residents and visitors, and El Paso’s largest municipally-owned park.

Once fully developed, it will be twice as big as Eastwood (Album) Park.

“Traditionally, our parks have been named after geographic areas or people. This approach is a fun and creative way of engaging the public in defining and branding a park that will become a fun landmark space not only for Eastsiders but our entire binational region,” said Sam Rodriguez, City of El Paso Capital Improvement Department Director.

Phase one of this new park, at 13501 Jason Crandall Drive, will open in 2020.

PHASE ONE will span across nearly 11 acres and will open for summer of 2020. It will feature the region’s only public indoor 50-meter competition-ready pool with a diving well, a community center, gymnasium, computer center, trails, a plaza, public art, and an outdoor neighborhood water park among other amenities.

PHASE TWO is in the design stage. The 22-acre expansion consists of two softball fields, additional parking, and other features.

Name submittals must be received by midnight on January 15, 2020. Submissions will be narrowed down based on marketability and/or relevance to the Eastside or the El Paso region.

For official rules or to submit an entry please visit,  the city’s website.
