Directions to Cemetery
Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. Parking at the cemetery is extremely limited and will be reserved for ceremony participants, the elderly and the handicapped. There will be off-site parking available for ceremony attendees with free shuttle service from the parking area to the cemetery. As soon as this year's parking area has been finalized, that information will be posted.
Parking InstructionsParking is extremely limited at the cemetery itself and needs to be limited to ceremony participants, the elderly, and those who are handicapped. There is no street parking. Attendees should park in the lot on Cole Grade Road at Fruitvale on the west side of Cole Grade Road behind the white rail fence. There will be WAA parking signs on the fence. Shuttle buses will transport attendees from the parking area to the cemetery (approximately five-minutes) and back again.
