Items placed on graves during mowing season at Vista Memory Gardens Cemetery

Announcement - Vista Memory Gardens Cemetery

On April 25, 2022, the Parks Department will be mowing the Vista Memory Gardens Cemetery again. Please be sure to remove all flowers, solar lights, and other ornaments 2 days prior to the 25th of April to allow them to mow.

If items are not removed they will be separated into 3 piles next to the dumpster to allow the family to sort through and place them back on their loved ones' graves. If not claimed by that Friday,  April 29, 2022, at noon, all items will be discarded.

Thank you all for your support and understanding from the City of Truth or Consequences Parks Department.
