Palisades Garden Walk Set To Be Renamed At Tuesday’s City Council Meeting:

Four months after Santa Monica City Council members renamed Town Square as “Ken Genser Square,” a decision is expected at Tuesday’s  Council meeting about the renaming of Palisades Garden Walk.

Town Square and Palisades Garden Walk were the temporary names given to the park areas that are currently under construction outside City Hall.

Council members decided to put off renaming Palisades Garden Walk on Oct. 2 last year as they did not like the proposed name “Santa Monica Commons.”

City staff sought community input with the full list of suggested names published below.

Which of these (if any) would you like to see as the park’s name?

Abraham Park

Angel’s Park

Arcadia Bandini Park
