The Dallas Parks and Recreation Board voted Friday to change the name of Robert E. Lee Park.
The park has been temporarily renamed Oak Lawn Park until a permanent name is approved by the Dallas City Council. The new name is actually a throwback, as the park was called Oak Lawn Park before it was renamed in the 1930s for Lee. The parks board vote was unanimous.
A statue of the confederate general was removed from the park last week after more than a week of challenges, including a temporary restraining order and a crash involving a crane to be used.
A separate task force is still working on recommendations for what to do with other monuments, building names and streets tied to the Confederacy in Dallas.
