Parking Instructions

We are asking that you arrive in plenty of time for parking before ceremony starts.  There is limited parking inside the cemetery so we ask if you would like to park inside the cemetery or designated parking in Dry Creek Cemetery to arrive around 9am.  There is NO guarantee that there will be parking inside cemetery as we continue to grow and receive a great amount of support.  There is parking at Optimist Park where you may car pull to cemetery or walk in.  

Depending on weather we can open 2 large dirt fields.  If it is too muddy you will not be permitted to park in these dirt fields.

We will have several volunteers helping with parking should someone have questions as they enter cemetery.  

We ask for you patience as we continue to work through parking issues with our amazing community as we continue to grow!
