San Ramon city officials want residents to 'Name That Park'

New 5.4-acre park located at corner of South Monarch and Main Branch roads

There’s a new park headed to San Ramon, and city officials want to give residents the opportunity to “Name That Park” in an online survey.

Located in Phase 3 of the Gale Ranch development, at the corner of South Monarch and Main Branch roads, city officials say construction on the 5.4-acre park is slated to occur in 2019 and 2020.

“The park’s theme was inspired by the surrounding natural habitat of Alamo Creek and will include whimsical animal features in its playground area including a salamander, frog and fox,” San Ramon city officials said in a statement.

The park’s many features will include: two play structures (for ages 2-5 and 6-12), a group picnic area, native plants and rocks, a plaza with labyrinth design, ping pong tables, corn hole game, game tables, four active fitness stations, sand volleyball court, baseball/softball field and a 1.28-mile walking path, according to city officials.

Now through Nov. 12, residents can submit their proposed park names online on the city’s website, or via Twitter by tweeting their name submission to @CityofSanRamon with the hashtag #NameThatPark.
