    Background:

    As you may know, the City is currently in the process of revitalizing Uniroyal Goodrich Park with construction expected to take place in 2019. During the community consultation process, we had a number of requests to rename the park. One suggestion was that the park be named after the Hiller family, who owned the land within which the current park is located from 1949 – 1972. A three-bedroom home was built by Gordon Hiller on the current parkland, and he and his wife Helen lived and raised their fourteen children there until they moved and the land was subsequently sold to Uniroyal Goodrich in 1972.

    This proposed name of Hiller Park complies with the City of Kitchener Facility Naming/Renaming Policy (I-475) in that it identifies a historical significance that recognizes an individual or family, such as the original landowner.
