COLUMBIA - Old 63 Roadside Park might have a new name after Columbia Parks and Recreation debated several new options.

Family and friends of Specialist Sterling William Wyatt proposed the park be renamed after him after he was killed in Afghanistan. Parks and Recreation said there's no legal barrier to renaming the park, but that naming it after one person would be too difficult.

At the meeting Thursday night, Parks and Recreation decided to propose Patriot Memorial Park, Old 63 Roadside Memorial Park and Sterling W. Wyatt Memorial Park. City council will have a final vote.
