[ARCHIVED] Renaming Scheduled for The Quarry at Grant Park

Citizens are invited to attend a ceremony at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 8 to celebrate the renaming of The Quarry at Grant Park.

The park is named in honor of Timothy A. Grant, who spent 22 years in the Recreation and Parks Department. He was the city’s first African American Recreation and Parks Director from 2003 until he retired in 2016. To commemorate his service, the City Council voted to name the park in his honor. 

During his tenure, he created the department’s WePLAY (We Provide Leisure All Year) slogan. He built 22 new playgrounds and the city’s first skate park, eight new water spray grounds and expanded greenways. He oversaw improvements at Winston Lake Aquatics Center, Salem Lake, Happy Hill, Jamison and Sedge Garden parks. In 2010 Winston Lake Golf Course was added to the National Black Golf Hall of Fame.
