Bayfront Park gets a new name

Original post made on Sep 10, 2008

Bayfront Park is now "Bedwell Bayfront Park."
The Menlo Park City Council voted 5-0 on Sept. 9 to rename the 160-acre park in honor of Michael Bedwell, the city manager from 1964 to 1991. Mr. Bedwell, 77, died March 9 after a fight with heart and lung problems.

As a relative of the family and having watched the wonderful response from the City of Menlo Park in support of Mike's wife Carleen, Sons Patrick and Allen, and other family members, it's wonderful to see such a tribute by the City. Menlo Park has clearly not lost it's ability to be a servant for the community and to show it's true heart by making this kind of a dedication. Mike was a wonderful mind and lives on in our memories!
