Forest Lawn NY
Section: The Last Forest in Forest Lawn
Description: Located across from the Chapel along the banks of Scajaquada Creek, this newly developed area without peer for cremation scattering.
At one time, this area was used simply as a means for construction crews to access the area along the ridge where the iconic Letchworth Mausoleum and other memorials were built. More recently, for the last half a century, it has served as a place to temporarily keep downed tree limbs, plantings and other debris collected from across the cemetery.

Now, through Forest Lawn’s commitment to the restoration and preservation of Scajaquada Creek and its surrounding environment, and the community’s growing desire for cremation, the “Last Forest in Forest Lawn” has been transformed to a truly unique area exclusively for cremation scattering and - one that is without peer. The peace and serenity of the Last Forest in Forest Lawn make it a wonderful place for relaxation and reflection amidst the beauty of nature.

About Forest Lawn NY
There’s no place like Forest Lawn. As one of the first deliberately designed and professionally landscaped rural cemeteries in the United States, its first interment took place in 1850. Today, there are more than 165,000 permanent residents in this 269-acre, not-for-profit cemetery, where all are welcome. Each year, we’re proud to host thousands of visitors who come to enjoy all that Forest Lawn has to offer. Unmatched natural beauty – hills, valleys, lakes and streams. Sculptural masterpieces. Living history. Most importantly, the stories of those who now rest in peace under our care - from a U.S. President and foreign royalty, to captains of industry, artists, inventors, veterans from every U.S. conflict since the Revolutionary War and people like us who have quietly built the community that we and our families enjoy.
