Park Restrooms

Baxter Cemetery

Cemeteries are peaceful places to visit loved ones that have passed. Those visiting may wonder, “Can I plant flowers in the Baxter cemetery?”. Cemetery regulations do not allow for the planting of trees, shrubs, or perennials on any lot. This is done not to inconvenience families, but to ensure the grounds remain beautiful for all visitors.  Artificial flowers and solar lighting are permitted one week prior to Memorial Day through June 15th of each year. Please do not leave any food, beverages, glass, china or tin jars as they are not allowed and will be removed. Cemetery staff encourages the use of shepherd hooks or elevated plant stands to prevent damage by lawn mowers.

The City reserves the right to remove all items that do not  conform  to  these  rules.
