Committee for Passyunk Square started this petition to Mayor Kenny and

The original name for this park was Passyunk Square. Let's return the name to it's origin and honor that name. It also makes sense location wise! After all, the park is in the Passyunk Square neighborhood, off of Passyunk Ave with an East Passyunk Civic Association. Rittenhouse has a Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, etc.

Christopher Columbus has a mixed reputation, at best. He invaded an already "discovered" land and unfortunately our history books have taught us otherwise.

We would rather have a better story to tell our children about the park we all spend so much time in.

Since the renovations are going to begin...what better time for a rebranding!?!

(Besides, Columbus has plenty of other honors around the city.)

 

Please consider changing the name back to one we can all be proud of!
