Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll Invites Salem Residents to Vote on New Park Name by July 31

July 17, 2019


New park at 289 Derby Street includes performance and program space, musical elements, swing seating, and a boardwalk along the South River. 

Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll invites Salem residents to weigh in on a slate of options for naming the new park at 289 Derby Street. The new park, where construction wrapped up recently, is now open to the public and will host a variety of programs this summer and in the months ahead.

The space, which was constructed thanks to a state grant, features outdoor seating, swing seats, a boardwalk that connects around most of the South River, and open space for programs and performances. An adjacent private property owner is also advancing plans that will create outdoor dining opportunities that will border onto the park.

Residents are invited to vote for their preference for naming the new park by visiting http://www.salem.com/289Derby by 4:00 p.m. on July 31, 2019. There, they will be able to rank in their order of preference among the following potential names: 289 Derby, Charlotte Forten Park, Nathaniel Bowditch Park, Naumkeag Park, and South River Park.
