Memorial Park Cemetery, located in Amarillo, Texas, is a member of the Dignity Memorial network of family cemetery and service providers. Since the mid-1970s, the funeral home has done its best to meet the growing needs of a multicultural and multidenominational community. The cemetery property has offered a variety of burial options to area residents since the late 1920s.
Big Texas skies offer sunshine most of the year, and the cemetery property offers easy access to Amarillo and surrounding community residents. The cemetery property is laid out in a park-like setting surrounded by greenery and mature trees. Flush-to-ground bronze memorial plaques are offered, which help to continue the uninterrupted views and vistas of the property, which encompasses over 30 acres, half of it still undeveloped.
A number of beautiful features and religious statuary scattered throughout the property offer visual and comforting reminders of the dedication, loyalty, and solemnity of the property. The first chapel museum on the property was constructed in 1960, enabling individuals to choose aboveground interment either inside and outside. In recent years, three additional mausoleum buildings and a larger chapel mausoleum have been constructed.
The beautiful property, graced with two large ponds, over which one spans a walking bridge that reminds one of nostalgic times passed, leads to well-groomed acreage and trees. The property offers visitors a serene and peaceful location to honor and memorialize their loved ones. Sections with names such as Good Shepherd, Last Supper, Whispering Pines and Bluebonnet offer visitors a number of locations for the internment of their loved ones.
Located in Potter County, visitors may reach Memorial Park Cemetery & Funeral Home by taking Interstate 40 East from downtown Amarillo. The property is located between South Whitaker Road and Big Texan Road north of the interstate.
