FLORENCE, Ore. – Welcome to the newest park on the Oregon coast – Exploding Whale Memorial Park!

The new park is named after the state's decision to blow up a 45-foot, 8-ton whale that washed ashore near Florence in November of 1970.

Nearly 50 years later, the town asked for name suggestions for its new park along Rhododendron Drive.

They asked the public for name suggestions and held a public vote, and the people have spoken.

I guess we're going in with a bang with a name like that.
