The beauty of one of Western Canada’s largest cemeteries is apparent everywhere you look. Royal Oak Burial Park is an urban refuge separated from the surrounding neighbourhood by a sheltering native forest. The well-manicured, rolling slopes are dotted with towering trees and special gardens. Numerous areas of remembrance can be found in the serene spots that natural geography has provided.
The Park offers a reverent and comforting place for ceremonies and services, as well as a tranquil and contemplative setting for family members and friends to visit year after year. It’s open to the public for visiting every day of the year, so that all can enjoy the changes each season brings—new buds forming, flowers blooming and leaves falling. The Park truly is a beautiful place to remember and reflect on the transitions of life.
Visiting: The Burial Park and Mausoleum are open for visiting every day of the year from 8:30 a.m. to dusk.
The main gate is closed and locked seasonally as follows:
