Should we rename this article "Gates of the Arctic National Park '''and preserve'''", leaving simply GotANP as a redirect? The "preserve" part incorporates a larger, but very similar area. The difference is that some activities (such as hunting) which are prohibited in the NP are allowed in the preserve. [[User:AHeneen|AHeneen]] 01:31, 13 June 2010 (EDT)

: As with [[Denali National Park]] the "and preserve" seems sort of bureaucratic and doesn't conform with the [[Wikitravel:Naming conventions|"don't use official names"]] rule, so I'd be in favor of leaving it off unless there really is some ambiguity about what's being referred to.
 
 
: As an aside, there have been a number of discussions around national park naming - a number of people were in favor (generally) of dropping the "National Park" part of the name (see [[Grand Canyon]]), but my preference has always been to include it.  See [[Wikitravel talk:Naming conventions#Mount X or Mount X National Park?]] for the start of that discussion, noting that it spilled over into a few other places. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] • ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) • 01:47, 13 June 2010 (EDT)
