Parker Park

The City of Dayton held a rededication ceremony Saturday for the John William Parker and Emma Blake Parker Children’s Park on North Winfree Street. Best known as simply “ParkerPark”, the small neighborhood city park has undergone about $160,000 in renovations and additions. That work began slightly more than a year ago, initially as a restoration project when water well drilling near the park resulted in significant damage to the Winfree Street park area. There are several new additions including a covered basketball court and a covered party area among others. On Saturday, Dayton City Council, the Dayton Parks Board, local elected officials, police, firemen and a number of community members gathered to celebrate the park’s rededication. Among those who spoke was William and Emma Parker’s son, David Parker. He’s chair on the City Park Board. During the ceremony, Dayton Mayor Jeff Lambright said he wants the city to be a place where local residents are proud to have other people come visit and one that attracts development. Again, that rededication of Parker Park on North Winfree in Dayton took place Saturday. A plaque at the park celebrates the day and those involved in making the renovations and additions possible.
