About Metropolitan Memorial Parks

We provide places of reflection and are committed to meeting the changing needs of our diverse communities by supporting people to grieve, celebrate life, and remember their loved ones.

Our parks offer sustainable and affordable interment options, crematoria, memorialisation, chapels and functions, through to history and recreational facilities.
