Sage Creek park to be named in Ron Duhamel's honour

  • Print

A new park in Sage Creek will be named after the late MP Ron Duhamel.

The protection committee agreed to name the park after Duhamel, following a presentation by ward councillor Dan Vandal.

Vandal said the park will be developed adjacent to a proposed K-8 school for the new subdivision, adding it's appropriate for Duhamel.

"He was a teacher and educator before he became a politician," Vandal said.

The committee also agreed to name a park in south St. Vital after the late Riccardo De Thomasis, recognizing the man’s contributions to minor soccer. The park is adjacent to Ecole Julie Riel School on Ashworth Street.

The committee also renamed Minnetonka Woodlot to Minnetonka Forest.

City staff said the name change was to address area residents’ concerned who feared the wooded area could be harvested one day if simply identified as a woodlot.

However, staff said the woodlot is zoned park and its trees could not be removed.
