A pool, swimming lessons, a gardening competition and even renaming a river are among the suggestions for ways to honour Illawarra Olympian Emma McKeon.
"Her composure, humility and extraordinary efforts in the pool have captured our community's hearts,'' Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said.

"Emma has already been awarded the keys to the city following her success in Rio, and her additional achievements are certainly deserving of further recognition."
Most of the ideas submitted so far relate to renaming a pool in the region.
"Australia's greatest Olympic athlete deserves Wollongong's most iconic pool," one suggestion read.
"Rename the Continental Pool. Dawn Fraser and Boy Charlton have iconic Sydney harbour pools. Emma deserves ours."
Another person reckoned the western suburbs pool should be renamed as it is used by McKeon and her family.
Others suggested the council should build a new facility, including a splash park with "Olympic rings that spray water and gold, silver, bronze areas".
"An Emma McKeon indoor aquatic centre where people can swim and enjoy the water all year round would be a fantastic tribute to her achievements," another person suggested.
Someone else felt banning mine effluent from being discharged into Allans Creek, restoring the waterway and renaming it McKeons Creek.
Renaming Belmore Basin was another option, while someone else felt a statue at that location was appropriate.
"She is an icon to the Illawarra and should have prime position," they said. "Just like the lifesaver statue."
People have until Wednesday, August 25 to submit their ideas. Ideas will be brought together and shared with McKeon and her family before a shortlist is made available to the public.
