ST. LOUIS, MO. - Wednesday morning, Clysdale Park was officially rededicated as Officer Blake C. Snyder Memorial Park.
The park lies just across the street from the neighborhood where Snyder was shot and killed last month.
Thousands of people signed a petition calling for a name change following the news of Snyder's murder.
"This community has reached out to us with their love and generosity, and I couldn't be any more humbled," said Elizabeth, widow of Blake. "My family has grown by thousands and I am overwhelmed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Tuesday evening, over 200 local businesses took part in a night to dine out for Officer Snyder and all law enforcement families dealing with loss.
