Gently rolling hills and carefully tended lawns leave the feeling of peace, serenity and dignity for all who visit. Individual gardens commemorate religious and patriotic themes in solid stone and statuary groups, including the Avenue of Flags where those who served in the armed forces are honored each Veteran's Day and Memorial Day. Over 3.5 miles of broad, hard-surfaced road reach every part of the restful sanctuary, with more than 25 gardens expanding over 150-plus acres. Lincoln Memorial Park offers innovative burial concepts, including traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, mausoleums and cremation options. MAUSOLEUMS Entombment at any of Lincoln Memorial Park's five garden mausoleums or the beautiful Chapel Mausoleum means a lasting tribute to a loved one. Constructed with time-defying materials, these magnificent buildings offer the dignity, permanence and beauty of aboveground burial. CREMATION A secluded and peaceful Cremation Estate Garden was developed at Lincoln Memorial Park to serve the families who prefer cremation. This lovely cremation garden is surrounded by immaculately trimmed hedges and lies at the base of a striking Carrara marble statue of Christ. In addition, several hundred beautiful cremation niches were constructed in the mausoleum buildings for families who prefer this type of memorialization.
