  • Beautiful cemetery! I saw people doing picnics, reading books, taking pics, etc. It's a cemetery but with a park vibes. There are nature and many different animals living free in the place and it's really nice to walk through or just chill in the lawn in front of the beautiful lake ;) i heard they display movies in certain dates. I'm looking forward to watch a movie with my friends in this place!
  • Really love this beautiful cemetery. They take great care of it. Security at the front was super helpful & kind when we asked questions. It’s free to walk the grounds, but they do charge for a tour. The only thing I didn’t care to witness were the workers who drive around on the grounds, driving right over the flat headstones. This seemed super disrespectful to me as they could easily navigate around them.
