A New Oasis

Glenwood Couple Turning Former Restaurant Site Into Urban Park
A parcel of land that once housed the popular Oasis restaurant is being transformed into an urban oasis by the new owners of the property.
Since purchasing the vacant lot at 104 S. Walnut St. on the southwest corner of Town Square in May, Joe and LuAnn Edwards have been working countless hours turning the site into a yard where they can bring their five Pomeranians to play or enjoy a cookout or cold beverage with friends.
Joe and LuAnn live across the street from the property in an apartment above the two businesses they own and operate at 427 Sharp St. – Joe Designer and LuAnn’s Hair Design.
“We live in town, but we didn’t have a yard,” Joe said. “This is close to us and ultimately I’m going to have a building in the back for my business, but that’s not going to happen right away.”
