Although the park's nickname is Daniel Park, the park's official name is "Gov. Bill & Vara Daniel Park." The park includes the Dayton city pool, baseball/softball fields, playground equipment, covered pavilion, picnic tables, walking/jogging trail, and restrooms.
The park is named for William Partlow Daniel (November 20, 1915 – June 20, 2006) and his wife Vera. Gov. Daniel was the fifth appointed Governor of Guam, serving from 1961 to 1963 and a Democratic member of the Texas House of Representatives. Born in Dayton, he spent the majority of his life working as a lawyer in Liberty County, Texas.
