Maryville trustees like the recommendation of the Park Committee to name a 4-acre park after the late Rev. Dr. Fred Winters.
Trustee Todd Bell said Winters was a great guy and he loved the parks in Maryville.

The acreage is adjacent to the bike trail and north of the YMCA, accessible from Duke Drive. Mayor Larry Gulledge said it is a beautiful piece of property lined with trees.
