Crest Lawn Memorial Park was established as a public burial place in 1916. Situated on approximately 145 acres, replete with rolling hills and established trees, Crest Lawn provides a tranquil place to honor the memory of loved ones. Our park also includes a variety of blooming trees, shrubbery and seasonal flowers. Adding to the appeal, Crest Lawn offers grave sites and a mausoleum with breathtaking views of the Atlanta skyline and other beautiful features throughout the park.
Additionally, our park offers a unique historical connection to the city of Atlanta as it served as a brief focal point during the Battle of Atlanta in the Civil War and now includes designated sites with historical markers.
