    SOLDOTNA, Alaska - The first-ever cemetery in Soldotna has been dedicated.

KSRM radio reports ( the dedication ceremony for the Soldotna Community Memorial Park was held Sunday afternoon at the cemetery overlooking the Kenai River.

The park also features a Memorial Wall to honor Soldotna residents who were buried elsewhere before the cemetery was built, and a Veterans Memorial.

The dedication marks the end of years of controversy over where to place a cemetery in the Kenai Peninsula community. Neighbors didn't want it near the residential neighborhood where it was proposed. But compromises, such as a buffer zone of trees between the cemetery and the houses, eventually cleared the way for the 17-acre park.
