Preserving Your Heritage
King Memorial Park offers your family a wide selection of memorialization options. This is because we all have a fundamental desire to honor, and remember those we love, yet no two families are alike in their vision of remembrance. We ask that you come to us with your memorization ideas, knowing that we will help you to arrive at the perfect means to express your love through the decades to come.
King Memorial Park has three themed gardens with flush markers designed to maintain a serene park-like setting, stretching over rolling green hills. These include our:
• Wind Chimes Garden
• Freedom Memorial Garden
• Butterfly Tree Garde
Grand Heritage Mausoleum & Chapel
We are so proud to have the first mausoleum built in an African-American cemetery, which features marble and granite imported from Italy with an interior stained-glass chapel.
King Memorial Park recently completed the chapel to accommodate 300 people for a funeral or memorial services. This chapel gives families the convenience to hold the service on the same grounds that the burial will take place.
Our chapel is available to any family who has heritage at King Memorial Park. We are proud to be the first African-American cemetery to construct a five-tier chapel-mausoleum on their grounds. The chapel features niches with glass front panels to your loved one’s beautiful urn. The mausoleum features interior chapel crypts with marble fronts imported from Italy; Stained glass windows, depicting the earth, sea and sky adorn the entrance. The mausoleums and exterior garden crypts are positioned at the highest point of the cemetery overlooking the rolling landscape.
• The Walk of Honor provides premium locations for cremated remains in the sidewalk around our memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
• Now, we also offer families niche space in the Shepard in the Storm Cremation Garden, a lovely, outdoor columbarium.
