Brendon Mason, 23, of Glenfield, Leicestershire, was discovered near Abbey Park's lake in the city at 08:10 BST on Tuesday. He died later in hospital.
A post-mortem examination revealed he died as a result of a head injury.
A 27-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death and bailed, Leicestershire Police said.
The force has reopened the park, but two areas within the park remain cordoned off.
Det Ch Insp Mick Graham said: "Brendon was seen in Tournament Road, Glenfield, between 16.25 BST and 17:00 BST on Monday afternoon, before heading off towards a bus stop near to a supermarket in Dominion Road.
"We are working to piece together Brendon's movements... and want to hear from anyone who remembers seeing him, or a man matching his description."
Mr Mason had short blonde hair and was about 5ft 7ins tall, officers said.
He was last seen wearing grey canvas tracksuit bottoms and a navy blue Adidas tracksuit top. He also was carrying a black Puma backpack.
The force said detectives were trawling CCTV footage and following a number of lines of enquiry as part of the investigation.
