Wildwood Valley Gardens
Bellefontaine’s Cypress Lake and Cascade Lake anchor Wildwood Valley, while a meandering stream connects the lakes and flows around the Lakeside Columbarium. New botanical style gardens, currently under construction, will surround the columbarium and stream and provide both cremation and traditional burial options. The garden plantings were designed by William Cullina, head of the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden, currently ranked number one by Trip Advisor as the nation’s best botanical garden. The gardens will feature long curving stone walls, swards of green grass, lush, peaceful gardens along the stream, and ribbons of path crossing the stream and connecting the gardens. Single graves in Wildwood Valley Gardens begin at $5,000.
