The group that oversees the Glenwood Cemetery reopened the grounds on Sunday, more than a month after a child was killed after a headstone fell on him.
Bruce Erickson, the president of the Glenwood Cemetery Association, said the group posted signs inside the cemetery requesting people not touch the headstones and asking that visitors stay on the footpaths. He said upward of seven signs were posted, four of them with the message about staying on the footpaths.
"We're relying on the good sense of people," Erickson said.
Erickson said people visited the cemetery to tend to family plots within a half an hour of it reopening.
The cemetery closed the evening of the boy's death and remained closed as the association considered safety measures. The cemetery declined to offer escorted visits during that time as well.
The association, meanwhile, reopened one of the wildlife passages in the fence around the cemetery. The other ones remain closed.
Erickson said it is not yet clear if changes will be made to maintenance procedures of the headstones. He said it appears that the headstones are owned by the families of the people who are buried there. It will be difficult to find family members in some cases, he said.
There are approximately 900 graves in the Glenwood Cemetery. It is located off Silver King Drive in Thaynes Canyon and dates to 1885.
One of the signs posted at the cemetery reads, in part: "please be courteous and do not touch, or place anything, on headstones or markers."
The child who died was a 4-year-old from Lehi named Carson Dean Cheney. A large headstone fell on him and he died at the Park City Medical Center.
The death prompted Park City officials to put caution tape around the larger headstones at the Park City Cemetery on Kearns Boulevard. The ones deemed most dangerous were laid on the ground.
Erickson said caution tape will not be put around headstones at the Glenwood cemetery since it is not certain which ones pose a threat.
