In addition to the Menorah Gardens, where the time-honored traditions and rituals of Jewish funeral practices are kept, the cemetery also contains a Bahai Garden, Buddhist Garden, Garden of the Last Supper and Islamic Garden, to name a few.
The town of Rockville, where the cemetery is situated, is one of Maryland's oldest towns, dating back to colonial times. Rockville was originally named Hungerford's Tavern, after the town's most famous historical structure. It was at this location that a group of patriots gathered in 1774 at a meeting that was a pre-cursor to the formation of the First Continental Congress.
Only a short distance from the nation's capital, Parklawn Memorial Park and Menorah Gardens is a meticulously landscaped, secluded sanctuary with a professional, caring staff ready to help families in their time of need. The stunning sculpture depicting Life Eternal within the grounds of the cemetery brings with it a promise of perpetual care from the caretakers of Parklawn Memorial Park, a beautiful final resting place that will bring peace to all who enter its gates.
