The man responsible for helping quadruple the number of parks in College Station now has one of his own.

Friday, Central Park was renamed Stephen C. Beachy Central Park in honor of the city's first Parks and Recreation Director.

In his time with the city, Beachy was responsible for developing a nationally-recognized system of parks, programs and services. He worked for the city 30 years before retiring last year, and Beachy says the best days for the city and the department are still to come.

"We have a good parks system, good parks program, and that will continue to improve," Beachy said. "The citizens here have always supported that, and that's one of their expectations."

The parks' offices Beachy worked at are actually located in Central Park, which now bears his name.
