Project Description:

LEES+Associates was commissioned by the Town of Okotoks to provide a full spectrum of design services for the expansion of a cremation garden at Okotoks Cemetery. The project included careful selection of materials and finishes to harmonize with existing aesthetic of the cemetery and its context.

The design includes a new community columbaria walk, in-ground cremation plots with winter interest and low maintenance plantings, a gathering space, seating areas, and a scattering garden. Sculptural weathering steel memorial walls mimic the meanders of the nearby Sheep River and the Okotoks glacial erratic, a well-known local landmark.
