South Park Cemetery

South Park Cemetery – located at the corner of Southdale Line and Sunset Road – was added to the holdings of St. Thomas Cemetery Company in 1910.

The land was purchased from E.D. Welding whose farm was 71 acres. Testing was done and it was decided that not all the land was suitable for burial purposes; 50 acres were sold and are now owned by Canadale Nurseries.

South Park has flat, level, beautiful land and you can see the sunrise and the sunset from every angle of this cemetery.

The War Veterans Association obviously saw the beauty in this land. They approached the cemetery company concerning the burials of returned soldiers. The Memorial Plot was established and the cross was unveiled in that section by Brigadier General King in 1922.

South Park Cemetery is the home of two Columbariums – the cremation mausoleums. They are surrounded with lovely shrubs and a walking path, and are distinctive monuments for eternal memories.
