Since its founding in 1919, thousands of families have trusted Parkwood Cemetery during their times of need because we respect the honor we have been given to protect their loved ones. Our staff offers families dignified, personal attention, and great care is taken to meet the families’ special needs and traditions. Our commitment to the families we serve has helped us become one of the most prestigious cemeteries in the Baltimore area.
Parkwood Cemetery, located on the highest point of Baltimore City, has been known as “nature’s cathedral.” Here, a rolling countryside provides tranquil resting places for loved ones. It is a setting where families can find peace and sanctity for generations to come. Parkwood offers picturesque views filled with stately trees and blossoming flowers. Its gentle slopes are enhanced by the spruces and cedars, and the flowering dogwoods and cherry blossoms gracefully lace the land. This cultivated land is beautifully maintained year-round, offering seasonal and natural beauty.
Many families choose our ornate flagstone chapel for services and memorials. The impressive structure was built in 1938 and has been a comforting place to visitors ever since. Parkwood has many burial options including traditional ground burial, lawn crypts, mausoleum entombment, cremation memorialization and a veterans garden. Parkwood Chapel Mausoleum was designed with taste, and keeps with the history that has made Parkwood one of the finest cemeteries in Maryland. The mausoleum allows you to choose clean, dry and ventilated crypt entombment sheltered in peaceful surroundings, where family and friends may visit all year long.
