Titchfield's new park will be called Abbey Meadows, after a public vote to choose its name.
The winning name was announced by Executive Leader, Cllr Seán Woodward at last night's Council meeting.
With 15 hectares of land the new open space will include a natural style play area, footpaths, wildflower meadows and educational wildlife areas. It's set to open next year.
The park's name was chosen following a consultation when residents were asked to choose between Meon Meadows, Tannery Meadows, and Abbey Meadows. More than 2,300 people took part with Abbey Meadows receiving nearly 80% of the votes.
Other name ideas from residents included Anjou Park, after Margaret of Anjou who was married at the Abbey to Henry V, and Parky McParkface.
Executive Member for Streetscene at Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Simon Martin, said: "I'm delighted that Titchfield's new park now has its name, Abbey Meadows is a great choice. This is an important step forward and I'm looking forward to the grand opening of this fantastic community facility next year."
