Who was Ray Harral?



Ray Harral was the Assistant City Manager at the time of his death in 1984. Mr. Harral had a reputation of being committed to leisure activities and parks facilities. He helped design and develop the Indian Springs Sports Complex. Prior to becoming the ACM, he was a retired Highway Patrol Officer. The Nature Park was being developed when he died, so the City Council named it after him.
