Glenrest memorial park
In 2023, Reagan County Commissioner's agreed to dedicate the small island of land that leads to the entrance of Glenrest Cemetery as a memorial park. As the main entrance from Hwy 137, many visitors, commuters, and others passing through Big Lake, see this property either daily or as one of the first images coming into Big Lake from the south. The Big Lake EDC staff and board of directors and the Beautification Committee were not satisfied with this image as a representation of our city, nor was it honor worthy to loved ones laid to rest in our beautiful cemetery. They wanted to help change it and make it a beautiful entrance, park and memorial site for loved ones as well as a tribute site for military personnel serving or who have served in each branch of service.
The BLEDC Board of Directors tasked the Beautification Committee with designing the park that would allow for a well lit place for people to reflect, meditate, remember and honor their loved ones and pay homage to our US Military service men and women. In mid 2023, the design was presented and accepted but due to the size, project and costs associated with the design, it was determined that additional financial assistance would be needed.
