ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — The town of Roseville is growing rapidly, and with all those new homes, come new places to play. But the process of choosing names for new parks, well, let’s just say, it took a super fun turn.
A vacant property will soon be one of seven new parks in Roseville, and all of them need names. The city asked people for suggestions, and more than four dozen responses came in.

“It’s exciting to see the public in our community being so engaged in this process,” said Tara Gee of City of Roseville Parks.
Many suggestions were named after people or neighborhoods, but out of all these ideas, one stands out more than any other.
“‘Super Happy Fun Time’ really describes why we build parks,” Gee said of one of the suggested names.
That’s right, Super Happy Fun Time is the recommended name for a two-acre park in the Campus Oaks neighborhood, just west of the former Hewlett Packard factory.
“The Parks and Recreation Commission voted on it and they really liked the fun perspective that name brings,” Gee said.

So we asked: what will make this new park so great, joyful and fun?
“We’re looking at pickle ball courts, a fitness class, as well as a fenced-in leash dog park,” Gee said.
“My dog is going to love this, he’s always looking for new adventures,” said one Roseville resident.
Now, the bigger question may be: will it ever live up to its unforgettable name?
“I think it will, I think it will get hype and attention for sure,” another resident said.
So how original is this name? For a park, we couldn’t find one with that name. We found a “Super Happy Funland” in Houston, which is a concert hall but no park.
