New Memorial Garden coming to Parklawn Cemetery this fall

Posted on Tuesday September 28, 2021

Tonight, Cambridge City Council directed staff to proceed with the creation of the Parklawn Memorial Garden. Located at Parklawn Cemetery, the Memorial Garden will feature a scattering garden and memorial tree options at varied price points. 

The Parklawn Memorial Garden will be situated amidst two mature and majestic oak trees, with gardens, a walking path, landscaping and dedication benches that can be purchased with accessible viewing areas in a park-like atmosphere, providing a quiet and peaceful area for reflection, meditation and remembrance.

This addition to Parklawn Cemetery will provide alternative and affordable options for residents to scatter cremated remains that are also greener and environmentally sustainable to help reduce our carbon footprint.

Work is expected to be completed by spring of next year depending on weather conditions.
