About Us

Focused on Your Needs

Event Notice

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we must announce the cancellation of our upcoming Mother’s Day service and the annual butterfly release. We know that this will be a great disappointment to many who wanted to honour and visit a loved one. Please also know that this is not an easy decision for us to make. Our preference is always to remain open and hold these very meaningful services.


The unfortunate reality is that both these events bring a dramatic increase in visitors, and based on previous experiences during busier than normal weekends, we know that we cannot ensure adherence to the mandated government limits on physical distancing requirements and number of people allowed at our site at one time. Cancelling these events is necessary to ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff.


We will do our best to work with you and find alternative ways to honour your loved ones. We look forward to when there is no longer the spectre of COVID-19 and we can gather together again.
