Michigan Memorial Park Decoration Guidelines

In order to maintain the serenity and elegance of the cemetery, we ask that you kindly adhere to the following decoration guidelines. Any decorations other than those listed below are prohibited.

Fresh cut & Artificial Flowers

Fresh cut flowers are permitted during mowing season from March 1 - October 31. In order to preserve the beauty of our mausoleums, flowers that are out of season or wilted will be removed. Additionally, all flowers are removed every March 1 as part

of our Spring Clean Up. Any items you would like to keep should be removed before this time.

Artificial flowers are permitted for the following occasions: Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Grandparent’s Day and July 4. Artificial flowers, wreaths, potted plants and baskets are permitted one week before the occasion and will be removed one week after the occasion.

Both fresh cut and artificial flowers are permitted only in approved vases. If a permanent vase or bronze memorial has not been placed at the grave, please refer to our display of approved designs in the office.

Mausoleum Flowers

Flowers placed on the floor and any items adhered to the crypt front are prohibited and will be removed immediately as they can ruin the coloring of the crypt front. Flowers that are out of season or wilted will be removed.

Winter Wreaths

Winter wreaths on a stand or properly hung on a mausoleum crypt front may be displayed from November 1 - March 1, after which time they will be removed. Grave blankets are prohibited.

 

Tree Plantings

Tree plantings are available in certain sections. Please contact the office for details.

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to preserving the beauty of the grounds and mausoleums at Michigan Memorial Park.
