On January 7, 2020 legendary rock drummer Neil Peart passed away.

Raised in St. Catharines Peart would go on to spend decades as the drummer and primary-lyricist with the Canadian band Rush. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and recipient of the Order of Canada, Peart is widely regarded as one of the best percussionists to ever grace the stage. He didn't forget his hometown, memorializing the summers of his youth spent in Port Dalhousie, with the song "Lakeside Park."

On January 13, 2020 Mayor Walter Sendzik introduced a notice of motion calling for the City's naming process to be engaged in honouring the late musician, marking his contributions by renaming the new Lakeside Park pavilion in his honour.

Members across the community have expressed interest in establishing or creating a legacy to remember Peart. As council prepares to vote on the process of memorializing the late drummer we are looking to St. Catharines residents for input.
