On August 22, 2016, the Barrington Municipal Council approved the naming of the new park/boardwalk development in Barrington Passage, near the Cape Sable Island Causeway.
Council had recommended running an online contest to name the new park development. Through the Municipal Facebook pages, the public was asked to suggest a name for the park. Over 60 name suggestions were submitted through this process. On Monday evening, Council agreed the new name would be Island View Park.
Council would like to thank everyone who participated in the naming contest, and would like to congratulate Prudence Blades, Christine Nickerson, Amanda Rhyno and David Hibbs Nickerson who all suggested Island View Park.
An official opening of the park will be held once the park is completed.
