Consistent with this vision the Trustees and Cemetery Advisory Committee have developed Flint into a premier community cemetery.
The Children’s Garden is an important space to the Trustees, since they know the special care and needs of families during one of the most difficult times in their lives. The Trustees and a group of committed citizens and professionals worked together on this garden. The guiding principle for this space is to “Create an area that is respectful of the spirit of the child and of the needs of grieving parents and families”. The Children’s Garden provides an environment that is peaceful and memorable for the families and friends who visit the grave site of their loved one.
Careful thought and planning has gone into each decision for this burial area for infants and children.
A one-of-a-kind art piece was commissioned by the Trustees in 2011. Joanne Kayati, local Worthington artist, created a beautiful butterfly sculpture that is situated in the middle of the sensory garden.
The sensory garden is situated around a path inviting visitors of all ages to see, smell and touch the wonderful plants that adorn this special place.
The Children’s Garden includes spaces for casketed and cremation burials at a very economical price. Please contact the Cemetery office with any questions.
