NOTICE (8/28/2015): Austin Water Utility is replacing a water main along the east boundary of Austin Memorial Park. This project will not result in a temporary closure of the Cemetery; however, additional construction traffic can be expected within the Cemetery during construction. We appreciate the public’s patience as the City undertakes this important Capital Project.
CITY SEEKS INPUT ON CEMETERY RULES
The Parks and Recreation Department is asking for your input in updating the current rules and regulations for City-managed cemeteries. The City will be offering several ways to provide your feedback, including open house meetings, an online survey and telephone interviews. Together, we will work to revise the existing guidelines and provide a clear forward path for our community. Topics for discussion include burial space decoration, trees and plants as well as any other concerns brought forth by the public.
