Antigua plans to do more than just rename its highest peak to honor President Barack Obama.

Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer says his government wants to create Mount Obama Monument and National Park with a new network of hiking trails. He also plans a museum with entertainment and educational facilities.

Spencer says Mount Obama will be a “beacon of hope for all people.”

He outlined his plan to reporters Monday. He did not say how much it would cost or how the government of the dual-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda would pay for it.

The 1,319-foot (402-meter) mountain is currently known as Boggy Peak. It will be renamed on Aug. 4 — Obama’s birthday. Spencer says the U.S. president will be invited to the ceremony.
