Park board approves new name for Jefferson Davis Park

The Fort Worth Park & Recreation Advisory Board voted unanimously to change the name of Jefferson Davis Park to Parque Unidad/Unity Park.

The name change must go before a vote of the City Council. The item is currently scheduled to be presented on Dec. 12.

Community members suggested in an online petition that the park be renamed Parque Unidad/Unity Park. At its September meeting, the board asked city staff to expedite the renaming process.

The 8.6-acre neighborhood park, 4001 Townsend Drive, was named Jefferson Davis Park in 1923 after the president of the Confederacy.
