KELOWNA - The Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery is a serene sanctuary to visit loved ones, pay respects to our history and heritage and enjoy the beauty of nature. Residents are invited to take a stroll around the newest addition to the Cemetery, the Legacy Gardens, an interment area for cremated remains and above ground crypts.
The Legacy Gardens is located adjacent to the Bennett Memorial and contains 842 niches and 12 mausolea (above ground crypts). With simple engravings to memorialize loved ones, Legacy Garden niches provide families a peaceful atmosphere when visiting Kelowna’s centrally located municipal cemetery. This addition to the Cemetery helps to ensure that the park can continue to serve the needs of Kelowna and area residents for many years to come.
“We are very excited to be able to offer new additional space at the Cemetery,” says David Gatzke, Cemetery Manager. “When residents choose to memorialize at the municipal cemetery they are ensuring that their families will have a secure, enduring place for future generations to visit. With options including family niches for interment of up to four cremated remains, families can remain together for generations within the Legacy Gardens.”
Also new in 2016 are upgrades to the Promontory Green Scattering Garden and improvements to the Dilworth Mountain Scattering Trail – a nature trail for scattering cremated remains along the eastern end of the Cemetery below the base of Dilworth Mountain.
The Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery offers several memorial options, including full burial and cremation plots, whether for pre-planning or at need.
