When you walk into the best Huntersville, NC cemeteries, we hope you’re filled with a sense of peace and beauty. At Gethsemane Cemetery and Memorial Gardens, we take our responsibility to your loved one and to families in need seriously, which is why we’ve cultivated a beautiful and inviting atmosphere for our guests here for funerals and visits. In this article, we’ll look at the many features we have on our expansive grounds.
The Memorial Garden
Our memorial garden is the core of our grounds, an expansive and peaceful location filled with flowers left by those visiting their loved ones. This is an ideal place to scatter ashes or to come for a quiet afternoon with those closest to the deceased, to share a picnic and memories of those who are no longer with us. Portable shelters can be set up in the grounds if you want some coverage on a rainy day or during the height of summer.
Our memorial gardens and facilities are connected by a network of extended walkways, making it easy to get around. These walkways are covered in towering trees and add a shady, quiet spot for quiet reflection as you walk. The trees can be decorated by flowers, and many are dedicated to a specific person whose family donated them. These walkways are ideal for quiet conversations before returning to the memorial garden.
The majority of our facility is our burial grounds, a large and green map covered in markers bearing the names and details of the departed. As you visit, you’ll see flowers left by fellow guests, and we invite you to leave your own tribute. Many of the areas are ringed by a circle of trees, lending some shade and peacefulness. If you would like help finding a specific marker, please contact our knowledgeable staff.
Dramatic black obelisks that mark our grounds, our mausoleums are an ideal location for anyone who prefers an above-ground burial. The mausoleums are individually marked, with each interment spot marked by an inscribed label featuring the name and vital information of the deceased. As with the rest of our facilities, these mausoleums can be visited by loved ones and gifts like flowers can be left behind.
The most dramatic spot in our cemetery, our lake is ringed by a flower garden and features a gazebo ideal for small gatherings. At the center of our lake is a powerful fountain that creates a gorgeous backdrop to any visit. If you’re considering holding an event on our grounds, like a family reunion close to the grave of someone who’s passed on, a lakeside event will provide a perfect backdrop and beautiful pictures.
We hope this virtual tour of our grounds has led you to consider Gethsemane Cemetery and Memorial Garden. But if you want to see one of the best Huntersville, NC cemeteries in person, contact us to set up a visit and consultation.
