WHAT: Exall Park Ball Field will be named Wayne Smith Ball Field at Exall Park
Friends of Exall Park join City of Dallas officials to name the park's ball field after
Wayne Smith, who was a founder of the Exall Park Task Force as president of the
Bryan Place Neighborhood Association. Exall Park was established in 1914 and is
one of the city's oldest parks. During the late eighties, the park had fallen into
neglect. The task force evolved into the Friends of Exall Park. With Smith's
influence, hard work, passion for his community and private funds raised
by Smith and by the friends' group, Exall has been transformed into a family-
friendly gathering place that features a walking/running trail, additional lighting,
new playground, and lush landscapes. Smith raised from private donors $20,000
of the $25,000 needed to purchase and install five workout stations at the park.
