It has to rank as one of the clunkiest names of any park-board facility.
But Empire Fields and Plateau Sports Park has endured for a while for the former B.C. Lions stadium location at 2901 East Hastings Street.
But that could soon change.
At the next Monday (September 14) board meeting, Comm. Sarah Kirby-Yung will introduce a motion to convene a park-naming committee.
Given the NPA majority on the park board, there's little chance that the area will be renamed Gregor Robertson Park.
But perhaps an NPA park-board political icon from a bygone era, say former TransLink chair George Puil, might be in the running.
If a park can be named after former NPA commissioner Andy Livingstone, why not for the longest serving NPA politician in the city's history?
After all, Puil was a helluva rugby player in his day.
