City of Vancouver: Change Guelph Park to Dude Chilling Park

For years, Guelph Park has been known as, "You know, that park like a block north of Kingsgate Mall?". It has been under appreciated, and mostly occupied by empty bottles of mouthwash.
The park itself is great! Boasting grassy knolls, a playground, and even tennis courts, it is a great place for you and your furry friend to relax and unwind after a rough day at work.
By renaming this lovely rectangle of grass to "Dude Chilling Park", people will give this little rectangle of nature the respect and attention it deserves. We all witnessed how much attention the park gained from just one day of social media posts on the internet. Imagine how much that attention can grow, given a little time and nurturing. Dude Chilling Park will become a destination, a place to meet with friends. Imagine a visitor from Toronto sharing his photo relaxing with the "chilling dude", instead of just another boring picture of him riding the downtown bull statue.

Let's all band together, and make this dream a reality. The power is in our hands.
