What's in a name?

Salamander Park ~ King City
Tucked away behind the new Coppa's supermarket in the King's Ridge Marketplace, is a small park on Tatton Court with a newly installed sign identifying it as Salamander Park. What a delightful name!   It is one of only two, of the 25 parks in King Township that isn't named after a place, person or event; the other being Fox Trail Parkette in Schomberg.   The Jefferson Salamander is an endangered species in Ontario, where it is a specially protected amphibian.
