I lived in Audubon Park from 1977-1986, and still have family (in-laws) and friends who live in 'the neighborhood'. Often have I been to the park, first as a youth, then as a parent with my own children. Truly, I had never wondered about why the park was named Michael Nutter. I guess that, I was assuming it was named after someone related to the (now defunct) Navy Base across the street.

I am glad to see the the park was named to honor the life and service of a local police officer who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect the families of our community. What a shame that he died so young. Based on all of the communications here, I can see that Officer Nutter was a man of integrity who continues to be remembered and have a positive influence on his family, friends, and even strangers (like myself).
