Parks Advisory Board reviewed and unanimously recommended to the City Council naming the park adjacent to the Lakeview Estates neighborhood for a previous owner of the property, Jesse Glenn “Bud” Baldwin, great grandson of James Schluter (later changed to Slayter) at the October 19, 2020 Parks Advisory Board meeting. City Council adopted a Policy and Procedure for Naming City Parks, Trails, Recreational Areas, and Other Recreation Facilities on November 10, 2020. The previous owner of the property, Jesse Glenn “Bud” Baldwin, is the great grandson of James Schluter (later changed to Slayter). Mr. Slayter was a German immigrant who fought in the Texas Revolution, and the land was originally granted to Mr. Slayter for his service in the Texian Army in the amount of 320 acres. The land remained in the family until it was eventually handed down to his great grandson, Jesse Glenn “Bud” Baldwin. Mr. Baldwin fell into poor health and the family sold off parcels of the land for their sustainment including 51.24 acres of land where the Lakeview Estates community is today. The City Council will consider naming the park at an upcoming regularly scheduled Council meeting.
