Cecil Watkins was one of the original members and chairman of the Tawawa Civic Park Trustees, which was organized in 1948. He later served as a member of Tawawa Civic Park, Inc. He was one of the first to advocate the purchase of land for Tawawa Park.

The picnic area at the end of the main road, Tawawa Drive, was named in 1967 to honor Mr. Watkins for his vision and efforts in making the park what it is today. In addition, Mr. Watkins was an executive with Amos Press and was an IUTIS Club founding member.
