June 8th Park dedicated to the memory of Constable Dan Woodall.

The City of Edmonton honoured Constable Daniel Woodall by naming a park after the fallen police officer. Constable Woodall was killed in the line of duty one year ago on June 8, 2015.  The park is located at 7304 South Terwillegar Drive. Councillor Anderson, and Council colleagues attended a dedication ceremony recognizing Constable Woodall’s service and sacrifice to Edmontonians. He was 35 years old and served with the Edmonton Police Service for eight years.
“Constable Dan Woodall Park will provide a place where all Edmontonians, the citizens Dan gave his life to protect, can come to enjoy time with their families and friends,” says EPS Chief Rod Knecht. “It is a fitting legacy for a man who was as passionately committed to his family as he was to his distinguished, but far too brief, career with the Edmonton Police Service.”
The park includes a new soccer pitch, in recognition of Constable Woodall’s love of soccer. It also features an Autumn Blaze Maple Tree planted with compost created from the flowers given to police after Constable Woodall’s death.

"The City is humbled to be able to dedicate this park to a man that gave his life to protect his his fellow citizens,” said Mayor Don Iveson. “For generations to come, Edmontonians will enjoy this park and remember the bravery, the commitment and the sacrifice of Constable Woodall .”
