The park offers residents a play area featuring swings, benches, picnic tables, and a pavilion.
Charlie Easterling was a long-time Camden County Sheriff’s Deputy with more than 30 years of service. He began his career in Camden County as a dispatcher and a jailer in the early 1970’s and retired as the chief deputy in December 2008.
More than a dozen members of the community joined the Easterling family and his widow Wanda in recognizing Colonel Easterling’s commitment to the community. Camden County District 1 Commissioner, Lannie Brant, spoke at the ceremony along with Camden County Administrator Steve Howard and Chief Deputy, Major Chuck Byerly of the Camden County Sheriff’s Office.
“It is my honor to be a part of recognizing the life and service of Charlie Easterling,” said Commissioner Brant. “He was a great servant to all of Camden County and I am proud that this park bares his name.”
The Charlie Easterling Memorial Park is located at the intersection of US Highway 17 and GA Highway 252 in White Oak and is a part of the Coastal Georgia Greenway Trail.
