Flowering Pear Garden

The beauty of nature is perhaps more important to this generation than any preceding one, and Mountain View Cemetery Association has always provided a uniquely beautiful landscape setting in the heart of a growing urban environment. The need for a place of reflection remains timeless.


The Flowering Pear Garden is an outdoor columbarium sited in the foothills of the cemetery adjacent to the new Golden Lotus Mountain. In keeping with the desire for some to celebrate Mother Nature and inscribe a remembrance, we are creating a select number of stone terrace cremation burial sites where each will be memorialized by a flowering pear tree and an upright monument at its base. Overlooking the terrace is a granite outdoor wall of community niches planned on a semicircle to frame the garden of flowering pears. We invite you to view a scale model, installed in our lobby, of both this and the Golden Lotus Mountain development.
