Japanese term or phrase: 鯖石川改修記念公園
Hi. This is another park name.

I suppose I could go with "... Kaishu Kinen Park" but is there a way I could express "改修記念公園" in English?

Here is the link:

Explanation:
First of all, I would not put this as "Kaishu Kinen Park," which obviously makes no sense in English.

改修 means it's renovated, but I think 'new' would be fine.

So, how 'bout just
Sabaishigawa New Memorial Park
or
New Sabaishigawa Memorial Park
I personally think you'd even be safe dropping the 'new' and going for
Sabaishi Memorial Park...

Thank you for your English suggestions! Yes, I see now that leaving it in the Japanese clearly does not work here. Thanks

agree  Joe L: "...obviously makes no sense in English." With you 110%.>>>If what is being commemorated is the "renewal" of something else (other than the park), then the "New" should stay, however./// Still agree, but please see my notes at top.

  -> Thanks, Joe.

agree  Joyce A: I also feel that dropping the "new" would be safe and would go with "Sabaishigawa Memorial Park." It's clean. "改修" is not that key an issue here... I don't think, anyway. :-)
