URBANA -- An area park has a new name. Wheatfield Park will now be called Larson Park, named for Bruce Larson. He spent more than 40 years with the Urbana Park District. He played a part in adding more than a dozen parks in the city. Larson credits much of his success to the people he served. There was a concert before and after the dedication and a scavenger hunt for the kids.
