Name the Park for Reggie Wong!
Our purpose is to Convince Governmental Officials In Boston to Rename “Pagoda Park” on Kneeland Street in Boston, MA for the legendary Reggie Wong. This petition is in support of renaming Pagoda Park in downtown Boston in honor of Reggie Wong. The City of Boston lost a truly good man and important friend when Reggie Wong passed away. The neighborhoods of Chinatown and the Leather District were impacted particularly hard by this loss because Reggie played such a large role in our respective communities. Reggie was one of the founders of the Boston Knights Chinese Athletic Club in 1961. That organization has played a pivotal role in bringing recreational activities to the youth of Boston for 50 years. One of the locations that Reggie and the Knights have used for recreational activities is the Pagoda Park located on Kneeland Street between South and Lincoln in Boston. We are asking the City and State (there is a question about jurisdiction) to rename Pagoda Park for Reggie Wong. We believe this a fitting tribute since Reggie played a large role in the park’s creation and consistent use over the years. We can think of no better way to honor Reggie than to name a park used for spirited competition filled with good-cheer and sportsmanship after him.
