Two Cincinnati recreation areas could be renamed to honor a fallen Cincinnati police officer and two Cincinnati firefighters.

Under the motion, the East Hyde Park Commons playground would be named for Sonny Kim, the veteran CPD officer killed in the line of duty in June.

The legacy of firefighters Daryl Gordon and Oscar Armstrong would live on at Queensgate playground, located in the West End. Gordon was killed while battling a Madisonville apartment fire earlier this year. Armstrong died in a Bond Hill house fire in 2003.

City councilmembers submitted the motion on Tuesday. It asks the administration to work with the Cincinnati Recreation Commission to accomplish the renaming. The motion must be approved by council.
