SANTA ANA, Calif. – The City of Santa Ana’s Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Agency is excited to introduce three new mascots who were selected to represent the agency, and is asking for your help to name them.
Over the next few weeks, a community poll will be conducted to select the names of the mascots, which include a red-crowned amazon parrot, golden-headed lion tamarin, and a giant-river otter. Parrots are famously known for soaring across the city, tamarins have a long-admired history inside the zoo, and otters will become Santa Ana’s newest residents. All three animals will perfectly embody the spirit of Santa Ana.
The community poll will be issued through a variety of venues including at event sites, website, and social media. The community poll closes December 17, 2023 and selected names will be announced on January 1, 2024 to ring in the new year with newly named teammates.
All three mascots will attend Parks and Recreation events and programs to continuously relay how the department creates opportunities to learn, live, and explore the city of Santa Ana.
Voting can be found at santa-ana.org/parks-recreation-mascots through Sunday, December 17, 2023.
