DeBary City Council members unanimously agreed on “DeBary Community Park” for the name of the city’s new splash park at its recent meeting. The park at 137 South U.S. Highway 17-92 will bear that name during grand-opening ceremonies being planned for Saturday, May 4.
The Community Park name leaves room in the park for plaques to honor DeBary’s prominent residents.
A memorial parkway will be installed and City Manager Dan Parrott said he would come back in a future meeting with some ideas for memorial plaques or bricks.
The council also authorized Parrott to proceed with having a sound system installed in the gazebo. The estimated cost is $10,100.
