In 2017 shishalh Nation Elders Language group and the SCRD began a project to provide and/or translate SCRD park names into the shashishalhem (Sechelt language). Cliff Gilker Park is translated as Ɂiyuls.

Pronunciation: Ɂ is the symbol for a throat catch, which is a constriction in the back of the throat followed by a sharp release. It can be heard at the beginning of English words ‘oh-oh’ and ‘ugh’. i sounds like the vowel in English ‘meet’. u is pronounced like the o in English ‘go’. First syllable has strong stress.

The name Ɂiyuls was chosen by the shíshálh Elders Language Group to represent the beautiful smooth rock/stone faces that are created by waterfalls located in the parks walking trails.

Meaning: smooth (rock, stone). (Sechelt Dictionary, Page 410)
