The Pines Urn Garden

The new Pines urn garden was designed specifically for those who have chosen cremation.

Built in the summer of 2020, The Pines is located in a quiet, shady location of Bayside Cemetery near the banks of the beautiful Raquette River.

The Pines is the only landscaped urn garden in St. Lawrence County. Hydrangea, coral bells, coneflowers and ferns decorate the garden, along with a stone bench centerpiece for rest and reflection.

The Pines features 150 sites for one to two cremation urns with raised stone site markers. These sites are less costly than a full casket lot and remain attractive over time, as they don’t grow over with grass.

Even if the cremated remains are not available for interment, memorial plaques may be mounted on the columns of the stone centerpiece.

Perpetual care of the garden and walkways is provided, and The Pines is accessible to those with mobility impairments.
