SOUTH PARK CEMETERY Gentle rolling lawns with quiet walkways, picturesque statues and well-maintained landscaping contribute to the solemn beauty of South Park Cemetery. Dating back to the mid-1930s, South Park is one of the oldest cemeteries in the area. This perpetual care cemetery offers traditional ground burial, mausoleum entombment, private estate mausoleums and lawn crypts. South Park also has an on-site crematory for those who prefer cremation, along with many options for memorialization. Four outdoor mausoleums can be found on our grounds: Ten Commandments, Last Supper, Praying Hands and Grace Garden, our newest development. Three water features—Water Babies, War Memorial and the cemetery's signature Garden of Palms— grace the parklike atmosphere at South Park. Double-depth lawn crypts are available in Serenity Lawn, and lawn crypts and traditional ground burial are offered in the new Garden of Columns. RESURRECTION CEMETERY Across the street from South Park Funeral Home and Cemetery is Resurrection Cemetery, which was dedicated and blessed in the early 1970s. The indoor Resurrection Mausoleum is located on these grounds. At the entrance to the Resurrection Mausoleum, you will find the 20-foot Resurrection Crucifix.
