Roosevelt Memorial Park, established in the late 1950s, lies along the Tidewater coastal plains in eastern Virginia. A hop, skip and a jump from the Atlantic Ocean, Roosevelt Memorial Park enjoys ocean breezes throughout its 52 acres, located within a stone's throw of the Elizabeth River.
The relatively flat acres of the property offer easy access for foot traffic throughout, and the well-maintained lawns of the property benefit from the lush and moist atmosphere of the eastern coastline. Sections of the property are shaded with mature and ancient pine, crepe myrtle and oak trees, and newer sections of the property offer a variety of flesh to ground monuments, a park like setting, and young and growing.
Staff at Roosevelt Memorial Park offer traditional in-ground burial, as well as cremation niches, a section for double-depth lawn crypts, and mausoleum entombment. Located in Chesapeake City, in Chesapeake City County, the memorial park offers a well-groomed and colorful setting during spring, summer and fall and a wintery wonderland when it snows. Wide walking paths make getting around throughout the cemetery easy for all ages.
Staff at Roosevelt Memorial Park is dedicated and proud to meet the needs of multidenominational and cultural inhabitants of Chesapeake and surrounding communities. Roosevelt Memorial Park is the final resting place of R&B singer and actress Ruth Brown, as well as many area generational family patriarchs and members, community founders and politicians.
Roosevelt Memorial Park is located just southeast of downtown Chesapeake near the junctions of the 64 and 464 Interstate highways. Visitors may also take County Road 190 or the Great Bridge Blvd., or Campostella Road toward the dozens of acres of sprawling cemetery property that despite its location nearby two interstates, offers a surprisingly secluded, private, and quiet cemetery property.
