The city on Wednesday announced the park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood would be called Perugia Park, named after Seattle's sister city.
On Thursday, the city reversed course.
It's the same city where Knox was convicted this month and sentenced to 26 years for the murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher. Knox is appealing the conviction.
"Due to community concerns about the naming of Perugia Park on the heels of the recent verdict in the criminal case involving Seattle resident Amanda Knox, we will temporarily shelve the naming process for this park," Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent Tim Gallagher said in a press release.
