Wisconsin Memorial Park was founded in 1929 to serve the needs of greater Milwaukee and Milwaukee county residents. One of the most beautiful memorial parks and cemeteries in the Midwest, Wisconsin Memorial Park offers stunning and awe inspiring landscaping and design that conveys an instant sense of comfort and security to those visiting their loved ones on these sprawling grounds.
The park-like cemetery offers a multitude of native shrubs, trees, and wildlife that have delighted visitors for decades and continues to do so. Wisconsin Memorial Park staff members offer a wide range of services for loved ones and grieving family members, including traditional ground burials, mausoleums, crypts, and elevated crypt gardens, in addition to cremation and cremains memorials and services.
Cremation niches are located in the Gardens of Eternal Life as well as the Alcove of Remembrance and the Wisconsin Room. Outdoor gardens and facilities include the Garden of the Last Supper, The Garden of the Apostles, the Chapel of the Chimes, the Little Chapel of the Flowers, and a Freedom Rotunda and Heritage Hall.
Wisconsin Memorial Park is the resting place of author James Kjelgaard ("Big Red") and major league baseball players Ken Keltner, and Oscar "Happy" Felsch, of the Chicago White Sox and one of several players involved in the 1919 Black Sox scandal.
Located a short drive northwest of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin Memorial Park is accessible off of Interstate 94, with a turnoff on State Route 45 to the north, and access on West Capitol Drive.
Wisconsin Memorial Park continues to preserve their legacy of compassionate service to all faiths and denominations in the greater Milwaukee area. Staff members as well as groundskeepers take pride in offering their services in one of the most beautiful, comforting, and landscaped memorial parks in the region.
