We understand the value of providing compassionate care to families that are grieving.

We understand the value of providing compassionate care to families. You will notice the difference with your first visit to The Gardens where you will be welcomed into the living room of our visitor center and be treated as an honored guest. Our families say that our hospitality is second to none. Our door is always open during the day, even on the weekends. People can stop by for a cold drink, coffee or pastry, to use the always clean restrooms or just sit and relax. We serve guests and visitors by providing a safe, tranquil resting place for their loved ones and support them through a difficult time in their lives. We believe that cemeteries are for the living and actively encourage families to visit.

“Hospitality is Outstanding”

Christina Mallios

At the Gardens, we encourage our families to practice their own customs and traditions. Services and ceremonies can be conducted seven days a week. We have very few restrictions on types of plantings, and mementos placed at memorials. This continues with our ability to provide options for an almost unlimited personalization of services.

Everyone resting at The Gardens has their own website, GPS location and 360° ground level view. This website allows family to celebrate the life of the family member resting here by uploading pictures, videos, and memories in the cloud. The GPS location allows families to get exact directions to their resting place. The ground level 360° view allows family members to visit and feel like they are right there.

The Gardens Cemetery in Boston, Massachusetts is nestled within the 179 acre Historic Brook Farm and surrounded by 1,000 acres of rolling hills, meadows, and protected woodlands. The beauty, tranquility and safety of our location is evident as soon as you enter the cemetery.

The Gardens is comprised of 38 beautiful, individual gardens, each with their own features, appearance, and special feel. The separate gardens allow us to accommodate our diverse families in practicing their own customs and traditions.
