About Us

Latvian Memorial Park in the Catskills

The Latvian Memorial Park is a Latvian Cemetery in the Catskills - a final resting place and memorial. It was established by the Latvian Disabled Veterans Association in the 1960os. The cemetery has urn spaces in niches (3 sections), in-ground urn spaces (1 section) and burial plots (limited selection of burial plots). The cemetery does its best to keep the ground neat and inviting - please come visit us!


A sincere "thank you" to everyone who ordered Christmas wreaths!


Organized burial ceremonies take place twice a year: at the end of May (Memorial Day weekend) and in the fall. The fall ceremony in 2023
took place Saturday and Sunday, September 23/24.
Due to the positive response from the previous two ceremonies, urn blessing ceremonies will continue be individual, but we will also offer shorter ceremonies right before the Sunday service as there have been more requests for that time. To secure an appointment, please write info@latvianmemorialpark.org or call! Ceremonies are led by Deacon Linda Sniedze Taggart. The spring ceremony for 2024 is planned for Memorial Day weekend May 25 and 26, 2024. The fall ceremony in 2024 is planned for October 5/6 (the weekend before Columbus Day).
