One of Dunedin's long-standing service organizations will have its moniker transferred to a yet-opened, public, waterfront park on Alternate U.S. 19.
Dunedin's up-and-coming waterfront park — known as the Bleakley property — on Alternate U.S. 19 officially opens in June with a new name. City leaders voted May 2 to name it "Dunedin Youth Guild Park," for an 49-year volunteer organization that raises money for scholarships and furthers the civic and cultural progress of the greater Dunedin area youth. The group requested its name be transferred from its current park nook on Buena Vista Drive to the Bleakley site at Dunedin's north gateway, where the Dunedin Youth Guild name would get more exposure from passing drivers on the busy two lane road.

The group's "significant contributions" to Dunedin youth may bring its name to a prime up-and-coming waterfront park on Alt. U.S. 19.
Dunedin Youth Guild wants to trade city park spaces. Its current space at Hammock Park doesn't offer near the name exposure that Dunedin's newest, waterfront park on Alt U.S. 19 might, the group says. So, Youth Guild members, who recently donated $200,000 to a future nature-themed playground at Weaver Park, want to have their group's name transferred from its Buena Vista Drive location. City leaders vote tonight on the Dunedin Youth Guild's request to name the Bleakely property after the group during a commission meeting at City Hall. The Bleakley property, a gateway parcel at Dunedin's northernmost boundary, was purchased in 2010. It has received upgrades in recent months in preparation of its opening. The up-and-coming park has received…

It’s time to get excited for Dunedin Youth Guild’s 39th annual Scholarship Luncheon and Fashion Show.
