Hedge Estates houses beautifully established family estates so generations may enjoy a central place to pay respects. For those who choose cremation, we've made some recent changes to accommodate a variety of needs. Serenity Garden is a cremation scattering garden. It is well manicured and overlooks a water feature where duck families often play. It also has stone benches so visitors can enjoy sitting in the garden. Cremated remains may be buried in the new Ossuary Garden.

Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens is a favorite spot for Canadian geese, protected under both the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act and Ohio State law. This protection extends to the geese, gosling, nests and eggs. While we make every attempt to clean up any mess associated with their visits, we are unable to prevent it, and we appreciate your understanding as we host these protected birds.
