Thank you for participating in this Cemetery Visitor Survey, prepared by the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department. PARD would like to know whether and how the Austin community currently interacts with the five historic municipal cemeteries: Austin Memorial Park Cemetery, Evergreen Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Cemetery Annex, and Plummers Cemetery.
From 1995 until 2013, management and maintenance for these cemeteries was provided by a contractor. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) resumed active management of the cemeteries in Spring 2013. Last summer, PARD worked with members of the community to prepare for the development of the Cemetery Master Plan, which is currently underway. The master plan will provide a comprehensive review of all five cemeteries, as well as an implementation guide with direction and action items for PARD moving forward.
As part of the master planning process, the project team is seeking your input on this topic. Please share your experiences by answering the following questions.
