AUCKLAND MEMORIAL PARK, UNLIKE OTHER AUCKLAND CEMETERIES
Auckland Memorial Park is located on 17 hectares (35 acres) in Silverdale 28 kilometres north of the Harbour Bridge. Set in a natural amphitheatre looking north-east towards the Hauraki Gulf, it occupies a spot of tranquillity and natural beauty. This natural beauty has been enhanced by a multi-million dollar programme of landscaping. A series of terraces sweeps up the enclosing hillsides, ensuring that every burial plot enjoys a peaceful aspect of surrounding countryside, or is situated close to the water gardens.
The Park’s lakes and gardens provide the perfect setting in which to stroll or simply sit and contemplate. The whole Park is planted with trees and shrubs, not only for their beauty but to encourage birdlife. Anyone may visit to enjoy the special atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. Picnics, family outings – even musical events of an appropriate nature – conducted respectively, are encouraged because Auckland Memorial Park is a place to celebrate life as much as to mourn death.
AT AUCKLAND MEMORIAL PARK YOU’RE IN GOOD HANDS
Auckland Memorial Park is owned by a trust and managed by Auckland Memorial Park Ltd.
The trust owns the freehold of the land, which can never be mortgaged and is thus secure forever. The company oversees day-to-day operations, record keeping and maintenance. A proportion of all sales is allocated to the Park’s Perpetual Maintenance Fund. Many Auckland cemeteries have no such fund to prevent them from falling into disrepair. At Auckland Memorial Park ongoing upkeep is assured forever by the Perpetual Maintenance Fund.
