Pinecrest Memorial Park cemetery

Cemetery grounds at Pinecrest Memorial ParkOriginally a dairy farm, Pinecrest Memorial Park sits at the geographical center of Arkansas. The cemetery was founded by John C. Thomas in 1929, shortly after the stock market crash and the beginning of the Great Depression.

A resting place with abundant natural beauty

Pinecrest is truly a place to pause and reflect on nature. Gently rolling lawns overlook winding pathways. Various species of trees, a small pond and even wildlife contribute to the beauty of the 220-acre cemetery property.

With a range of burial accommodations, Pinecrest Memorial Park comprises 22 gardens, including lawn crypts, mausoleums, a family estate garden, cremation gardens and many other feature gardens. Some of the gardens have hand-carved sculptures imported from Carrara, Italy. Our team is dedicated to maintaining the grounds.

Cemetery for veterans

Veterans section at Pinecrest Memorial ParkThe Veterans Field of Honor at Pinecrest Memorial Park honors veterans of the U.S. armed forces with 2 dedicated gardens and a statue of the 4 branches of service.

"From the moment my mom passed that morning, as soon as they received my mom Miss Scottie called me. She made me feel so cared for and that I did not have to worry, she would help me take care of everything. This was my first time dealing with the passing of a parent and working with my brother out of state she worked so well with us both. No matter what services you need call and ask specifically for her. She is Amazing at what she does. ❤️"
