A VISUAL OVERVIEW OF RIVERSIDE
Riverside Memorial Park is directly opposite Greenwood Memorial Terrace on Government Way and its grand entrance is framed by the historic Park Cottage and Heritage Funeral & Cremation. The park covers a total of 161 acres with 85 of those acres developed, overlooking the confluence of the Spokane River and Latah Creek. Native basalt rock formations are used consistently throughout the park's architecture and structures to connect this land to its ancient heritage, as well as its more recent history as you pass through the Kirtland Cutter designed arch entrance to the park.
It's beauty is not only a place of solemn memorial, but a celebration of life as the park is a frequent site of many community events in conjunction with Heritage Funeral & Cremation.
MEMORIAL OPTIONS AT RIVERSIDE
Below are some of the many options for establishing a place of permanent memorialization at Riverside Memorial Park.
There are nearly 50 acres of the park set aside for the cemetery grounds. Across the grounds are almost three miles of pathways, spreading out from the main entrance in the pattern of a flower bloom.
ROSE CIRCLE CREMATION NICHES
A striking landmark within the park are the Rose Circle Cremation Niches. Centered on a wooden pavilion, flowers and columbaria create a distinct space of reflection and peace surrounded by nature.
FOREST GROVE GREEN BURIAL & CREMATION SECTION
Riverside Memorial Park is the location for Eastern Washington's only dedicated site for green burials and cremations.
Forest Grove reserve at Riverside is designed to ensure that both interment and ongoing maintenance minimize the carbon footprint of the memorial process. To discover more about green burial, visit Sustainability and Green Burial.
