Community members in Roseville, Calif., who were tasked with naming a series of new parks came up with an array of creative names — including Super Happy Funtime.  

“It’s exciting to see the public in our community being very engaged in this process,” Tara Gee with City of Roseville Parks, told CBS 13, referring to the roughly four dozen people who participated in the naming of seven new parks.   

“‘Super Happy Fun Time’ really describes why we build parks,” Gee continued, adding that the Parks and Recreation Department “really liked the fun perspective that that name brings.” 

Other names on the list included Harry Potter Park, although most of the suggestions were people’s names.

The outlet then asked Gee how the city could ensure the park lives up to its name.  

“We’re looking at pickle ball courts, a fitness course, as well, a fenced-off leash dog park,” Gee said.  

The Roseville City Council is scheduled to vote on the names Jan. 19.
