Agenda Item #3904 - ORD. 14-009
1st & 2nd Reading
An Ordinance Renaming the Park Located at Tatnall Street and 24th Street Presently Known as the “Tatnall Playground” to “One Love Park”

Synopsis: This Ordinance is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. If approved, Council would be authorizing the renaming of a City park at 24th and Tatnall Streets (currently known as Tatnall Playground) as “One Love Park.” Council President Theo Gregory is proposing that the park carry the title “One Love Park,” based on the song “One Love” and lyrics by internationally-known reggae musician Bob Marley. Marley lived in Wilmington in the mid- 1960’s in a home owned by his mother at 2311 Tatnall Street across the street from the park. The Council President said the lyrics of One Love and what the song has come to mean to people in the years since Bob Marley composed it is a reminder about the importance of love for our children and for each other. Bob Marley’s daughter, Cedella Marley, based on her father’s work and legacy, adapted a children’s book entitled “One Love.” Cedella said the book is intended to remind new generations that positive things can happen in a community and people can feel good when everyone comes together with love in their hearts.
