SEASONAL UPDATE
After a long and hot Summer the weather has finally begun to cool as we head into the Fall.  As you will see when you visit, the combination of cooler temperatures and morning dew has already had some impact on the lawns as the beautiful green is starting to return.  Although we are still in an extreme drought and water conservation continues to be essential, these conditions will enable us to begin to address some of the work orders and new graves that have come in during the last few months. These will be done in the order in which they were received.  Additionally, now that the health of the grass is returning we are beginning to mow again in the areas where the conditions permit.  While this recovery process will continue over time we appreciate your continued patience and understanding.  

VISITING THE PARK
Please click here to read our COVID-19 information page before visiting the park.

Our Welcome Center is open throughout the year Monday – Friday (see our schedule of holiday closings) and there is always a staff member on site to assist you. We provide lot location maps and information, directions within the park and we can escort visitors if they are not familiar with a location.  A member of our staff can prepare these items for you.

Additionally, please note that when you are planning a visit to the park we offer the courtesy service of cleaning the plaque and grave area.  In the winter, we will clear a path to the location and clean off the plaque.  These services are time and weather permitting and please be sure to call ahead at least two days in advance.  Please download our Visiting the Park brochure here.
