The Parks Department kindly reminds anyone placing floral offerings on grave spaces that, except immediately after interment, the following conditions will apply:
Flowers only. Natural or artificial may be placed in grave space containers, provided the container is part of the memorial. Flowers placed on grave spaces may be removed by city staff while performing maintenance duties. Flowers will be disposed of at the discretion of city staff when the condition of the flowers is considered detrimental to the beauty of the cemetery.
Floral offerings, wreaths, or ornamental monuments may be placed at the grave space, provided they are free standing and are not staked into the ground. If they are staked into the ground, they will be removed by city staff and disposed of.
The use of wood, glass, porcelain, pottery, or other breakable containers, either above or below the ground is prohibited.
Come out to our beautiful Platzl and have a look at the hanging flower baskets, they look amazing! Be sure to also have a look at the new hanging flower baskets along the strip in Marysville.
