Park staff will be allowed to name the site of the annual Tennessean State Park event, with the naming rights owned by the parks government.
Key points:The name change comes after a “tremendous year” for the parkStaff say the name change is “part of our heritage” and “not a commercial move”The park is currently named after William James, the founder of the park in the 19th centuryThe park’s staff are currently discussing a name for the event which they hope will be “part and parcel of our legacy”.
Key points :The name is part of our “historical legacy” and is “not commercially driven”, according to park spokesman Scott WilsonKey points Park staff have already consulted with the public about the name “The Blue Park”Park manager, Bill Condon, said the name was a decision he made on the recommendation of park staff”It is a huge event for us and it is our biggest event of the years,” Mr Wilson said.
“It’s been a big year for the state parks, it’s been our biggest year in terms of attendance.”
Mr Wilson said the naming of the site had been taken into consideration and that the name could be changed.
“We will be making that decision soon,” he said.
The name was proposed by park staff after discussions with the park’s management team.
“There was a lot of discussion about it,” Mr Condon said.”[But] the decision was made for us to move ahead with the name, and that was a very strong recommendation to us from our management team.”
The name for The Blue Park is “Big Ten”, a reference to the number of games played by the Big Ten Conference, which was formed in 1909.
Mr Condon noted that naming The Blue Pool was the first name proposed in the park, which is named after its former president, William James.
“The Blue Pool is an excellent name,” he explained.
“I know there are some people who would disagree with that name.”
That was not our intention, but that was the name we came up with.
“The naming of The Blue State Park comes as park staff are debating whether to change the name of the event.”
If there’s any change to the name it will be discussed and we’ll have to sit down and look at it,” he told the ABC.”
But it’s something that we’re going to have to take into consideration in the coming weeks.”‘
It’s a bit of a big event’Staff say it is “a bit of an event” and that naming the site is part and parcel “of our heritage”.”
There is a real love of the parks and heritage of the state park and I know people love the parks, and they love the history of the region, and there is a great connection between the two,” Mr Boudreau said.
Keypoints:A name change was proposed in January, but it has not yet been decidedPark staff say they have “great respect” for “the history” of the area, but “somebody else is coming to take over” the nameThe name of The Pink Pool is still in use, Mr Corman said.
Mr Wilson added the name The Pink State Park had been used by the park for over 150 years.”
To have that name come up is a very special thing,” he noted.”
You don’t just change the word ‘Pink’ and then leave it there.
“And we have been using it for over a hundred years.
It’s the most well-known name in the world and the most iconic name in our state park.”
A lot of people in the area know it as the Pink Pool, but we have never used that name in any other context.
“The Pink Pool was also used by a former president of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton, and as the name for a park in South Australia, before being renamed after former US President Donald Trump.
The Pink State State Park has hosted “big” events in recent years including the Great Barrier Reef’s 60th anniversary and the World War II centenary.
