Libra is one of the twelve constellations of the zodiac, lying south of the celestial equator between Scorpio and Virgo. Libra is the Latin term for “balance,” and the constellation is named such because ancient astronomers believed the stars formed the outline of a woman holding a scale. The Roman interpretation is often linked with a concept of equity, since the woman holding the scales is Astraea, the Roman goddess of justice. Libra Triangle is a fitting name for this park, since it is bounded by Justice Avenue.
