Watch this space to see when the new columbarium project will be available for sale. A columbarium is a bank of niches that are designed as permanent placement of the cremains of a loved one after cremation. Each of these spaces will accommodate the ashes of either one or two cremains. The personal information will go on the black granite niche fronts. There are 160 individual niches. They are set between the bridge at the Meditation Pond and the gazebo. During the spring, summer and early fall seasons there is a fountain in the pond which will offer a quiet place of contemplation and remembrance for families that choose this new addition to Calumet Park Cemetery’s constantly growing inventory of peaceful and beautiful final resting places for our departed ones.
There will be a stream surrounding the Columbariums with a waterfalls and bridges to get to this small but beautiful island paradise.
For information on this or any of the many wonderful choices for the cremation-oriented families that we serve, please call 219-769-8803 or stop in for a tour of the new facility.
