Spring maitenance for Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery

Only fresh cut flowers, wreaths or other natural floral offerings shall be placed on grave sites during spring grounds upkeep.

Starting Monday, March 16, the City of Kelowna’s Memorial Park Cemetery gates will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week until Oct. 31.

To allow for grounds maintenance during this time, only fresh cut flowers, wreaths or other natural floral offerings shall be placed on grave sites within lawn areas.

Family and friends whose custom it is to place a stone on memorial markers may do so, however, the stones will be removed by staff prior to the next scheduled mowing.

Visitors are also reminded that candles are not permitted as the open flame poses a potential fire hazard.

The cemetery has been located at 1991 Bernard Ave., at the base of Dilworth Mountain for more than 100 years.

Originally an Anglican Church burial ground, the historial area remembers both pioneers and recent citizens who helped shape our community. Residents can learn more about the history by contacting the cemetery office at 250-862-5518.
