Walnut Hills Cemetery, Brookline MA
Master Planning for Mixed-Use Interment
Facing the need to preserve its historic landscapes while remaining an active cemetery, Walnut Hills Cemetery is broadening its offerings to include alternative memorialization for full burial and cremated remains. To appeal to potential clients, the alternative sites must offer settings of beauty, tranquility, and dignity.
For Walnut Hills, the solution lay in identifying underutilized areas and developing designs for memorial gardens, walls, and ledger stones.
