(DETROIT) On Wednesday, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan unveil the new Antonio McDuffy Park, CBS Detroit reports.

The park, located on West Philadelphia street, was renamed after a respected Detroit community member.

Antonio McDuffy served as deputy director for Central Christian Detroit Community Development Corporation for 25 years and was a cherished community member who had a deep connection with families in the city.

During the unveiling, Duggan spoke about Duffy and his respected legacy in Detroit.

“I can’t think of a better way to honor Antonio McDuffy’s legacy in the Piety Hill neighborhood than to dedicate this beautiful new park in his name,” Duggan said. “The project is a perfect example of what Antonio stood for, which was the community coming together to create something special that will benefit this neighborhood for generations to come.  We are all deeply grateful to Project EverGreen and the Rocket Community Fund for their partnership in making this day possible.”
