CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) - March 28 is the final day for the public to provide input on a possible new name for Emancipation Park and Justice Park in Charlottesville.

Emancipation Park was previously named Lee Park; Justice Park was once named Jackson Park.

The city voted in June 2017 to change the names, two months before the Unite the Right Rally was held.

"The names Lee Park, Jackson Park, and Emancipation Park will not be considered," the city says on the survey.

After the top names are selected, City Council will hold a public vote on the names in April.
