The Roseville Parks and Recreation Commission is continuing the conversation about the name of Pocahontas Park after several residents asked whether the name was offensive to the Native American community.

The Parks and Recreation Commission, using the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) Racial Equity Toolkit, has been gathering input about the topic. The Commission has reached out to members of local Native American communities and Native American residents of Roseville, and will be connecting with neighbors of Pocahontas Park and others residents interested in the topic.

The Parks and Recreation Commission will review the input it has collected and hold a community listening session at its September 7 meeting. Interested individuals are encouraged to visit www.cityofroseville.com/pocahontaspark to learn more. Visitors can provide feedback and suggest alternative names at the website.

Residents are encouraged to attend the September 7 Parks and Recreation meeting at Roseville City Hall, 2660 Civic Center Drive. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be available online at www.cityofroseville.com/webstreaming or on Cable Channel 16. Members of the public unable to attend the meeting in person but who want to comment may register to attend the meeting online by visiting www.cityofroseville.com/attendmeeting
