Pinelawn Memorial Park has founded a tradition in the Farmingdale, Suffolk County area that celebrates life and honors loved ones with dignity, pride and solemnity. Staff at Pinelawn Memorial Park and Garden Mausoleums encourage grieving family members to remember their loved ones, perpetuate their memories and honor their history. Offering hundreds of acres of sprawling lawns, beautiful landscaping, and a multitude of gardens and mausoleums to meet the needs of multicultural and multi-denominational families, it's one of the most beautiful in the state.
Flower-lined walkways, tranquil ponds, splashing fountains and well manicured lawns, shrubs and trees offer visitors one of the most beautiful, and tranquil memorial parks in this part of the country. Individual gardens are designed to offer not only beauty but peace and serenity. Bronze memorials commemorate loved ones and architectural art, fountains, and strategically designed walkways and pathways offer visitors perpetual views of beautiful dignity.
