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). Connor Park is translated as ch’emalaḵ.

Pronunciation: ch’ is like ch, but with a throat catch. The e sounds like the i in English ‘him’. k is pronounced like k in English but farther back in the mouth. All syllables have strong stress.

The name ch’emalaḵ was chosen by the shishalh Elders Language Group because of the cold winds experienced by users at the park

Meaning: cold wind. (Sechelt Dictionary, Page 530)
