Edmonton is naming a new park after a city officer who was killed in the line of duty earlier this year.

Edmonton is naming a new park after a city officer who was killed in the line of duty earlier this year.

Constable Dan Woodall Park will be located on the city’s south side.

The park is still under construction, but will have a soccer field, baseball diamond and playground.

Woodall was killed in June while executing an arrest warrant related to hate crimes.

Norman Raddatz fired dozens of shots through his front door, killing Woodall and wounding another officer.

Raddatz then killed himself.

“It is a privilege for the City of Edmonton to honour Const. Dan Woodall in this way,” said Mayor Don Iveson.

“His example of bravery, his commitment to this community and his abiding love of family and sport will be remembered for years to come.”
