During the park’s development, the City was approached by a friend of Jimmy Lee Campbell requesting that the park be named after Jimmy. Mr. Campbell lived at this location as a child prior to the City purchasing the property. Dedicated in February of 2009, this community gathering place pays tribute to Cpl. Jimmy Lee Campbell and eight of his comrades, who all died in the Vietnam War or as a result of that conflict. Honors Cpl. Billy K. Carver, Spc. Frank E. Faught, TSG. Dallas S. Perryman, Cpl. Grover W. Boston, Sgt. Phillip D. Sanders, Cpl. Edgar P. Pulliam, Jr., Spc. Donald P. Sloat and Spc. Ruben Wayne Dykes. Coweta lost more men per capita in the Vietnam War than any other community in the entire United States.
