OAK RIDGE - "Heritage Farm Park" is the No. 1 name suggestion for Oak Ridge's future town park. Purchased in 2018 from longtime Oak Ridge residents Frank and Claudia Whitaker, the 58-acre tract will be developed as an expansion of Oak Ridge Town Park off Linville Road and Lisa Drive.


John Garrett, co-chairman of Oak Ridge's Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, presented the board's three top name suggestions for the Whitaker property park at the town council's meeting April 1. "Oak Ridge Veterans Park" and "Oak Ridge Community Park" also received high votes after the board reached out to local organizations and conducted an online survey seeking name suggestions for the park.


Council members told Garrett they were impressed with the process the board had undertaken to seek input from citizens. The council plans to vote on the park name at its Thursday, May 6 meeting.
