New Tacoma Cemetery - University Place
The park-like beauty of this garden cemetery forms an airy, serene sanctuary. Instead of competing headstones, flat markers set flush with the lawn provide everlasting tributes to each person. New Tacoma has over 150 acres of land with sufficient area still remaining to serve families for centuries to come.
Through careful planning and design, New Tacoma offers several dedicated areas including our Armed Services areas, Lullaby Land for children, Cremation River Garden for inurnment along with different church and religious sections.
New Tacoma Cemetery has three Mausoleums made of Italian marble with crypts for those selecting above ground burial and beautiful glass and granite front niches for those desiring cremation.
Our new Cremation River Garden offers a free scattering area for the families we serve. This peaceful area is tucked under mature trees with a running water stream.
