Since Pinelawn’s inception in 1902, a promise has been made to continuously add to the beauty of the grounds so that all visitors are enveloped by a sense of tranquility even during the most trying times. The dedication to this promise has earned Pinelawn Memorial Park And Arboretum the title of Best Cemetery of Long Island by Bethpage Federal Credit Union’s Best Of L.I. 2020 program and was chosen by the residents and patrons of Nassau and Suffolk County.
The Promise of Pinelawn, which displays Pinelawn’s guiding principles, states, “The policy of Pinelawn is and always will be, to make it as beautiful and as tasteful as possible.” Since 1902 when Pinelawn’s founder, William H. Locke, wrote these words to present day, Pinelawn Memorial Park And Arboretum has put the utmost effort towards ensuring all visitors are surrounded in beauty and tranquility. They do so through their attention to the carefully planned landscape, which consists of flowing fountains, wide-sweeping lawns, vibrant flowerbeds, majestic trees, and various historic sculptures.
“We are honored to receive the title of Best Cemetery of Long Island for the year 2020, it is truly a testament to the entire Pinelawn staff and our commitment to providing our visitors with a beautiful and tasteful experience. We look forward to continuing to improve and consistently upholding our founding values,” stated Justin Locke, President of Pinelawn Memorial Park And Arboretum.
Furthermore, Pinelawn’s coveted title as Best Cemetery of Long Island comes from not only their dedication to maintaining the grounds, but also providing people with affordable options that allow them to plan ahead for family security and peace of mind. Their $40 per month pre-planning option allows families to make an important life decision ahead of need, one that eases the emotional and monetary strains in the future.
