Cremation garden at Mariposa Gardens Memorial ParkMore and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

If you're interested in cemetery placement, Mariposa Gardens Memorial Park is an oasis with more custom cremation choices than any other cemetery in the area.

And for those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"The loss of a loved one is hard; I'm 35, lost my pregnant wife (able to save the baby). Trust me I know. Out of all the funeral homes we looked at, mariposa was the most beautiful and unique. I was happy to have my wife's urn laid here knowing that this place is always going to be beautiful. The team is knowledgeable, helpful, supportive and accommodating. When I say accommodated, I would always call in last minute with a request (they took care of me). I can sleep at night knowing that mariposa took care of me during my tough times. Thank you caprianna, coleen and Casey."

"We really loved intimacy of Mariposa Gardens. The grounds are kept immaculately and it is just beautiful. It is very peaceful, and just the right size. The entire staff at Mariposa, from Sarah, to Caroline, to Carisa, made me feel very well taken care of, and took their time explaining everything. I felt they were extremely honest, which is sometimes missing from people in this profession. They made me feel like family, and I will be forever grateful for actually making this a positive experience."
