Cremation Gardens

 

Lakewood’s cremation gardens were designed especially for the burial of cremated remains.

Garden of Serenity

The Garden of Serenity is a beautifully landscaped area located off the shore of Lakewood’s eight-acre lake (shown above). Cremated remains are placed in a granite container beneath a solid bronze marker. One lot may contain a single or double burial with one marker (up to two names).

Garden of Remembrance

Located on the east side of the cemetery, this cremation garden is surrounded by other “memorial park” gardens. In “memorial park” gardens, all markers are flush with the ground, which gives the area a park-like appearance. A large monument is placed centrally. This garden’s lots can accommodate up to two urns. Urns are placed in a granite cremation vault beneath a solid bronze marker.

Tree of Remembrance

 

If you choose to scatter your own or a loved one's cremated remains, consider having your life or the life of your loved one commemorated with a plaque on Lakewood’s Tree of Remembrance.

A Work of Art

Located in the lower level of Lakewood’s beautiful Memorial Mausoleum, the Tree of Remembrance is an artistic expression of memories. Its branches extend from a base and hold the names of more than 500 people on individual bronze plaques. Each name represents a leaf on the tree -- a life to be remembered.
