The Pines Urn Garden

Located in a quiet, shady location of Bayside Cemetery near the Raquette River, The Pines is the only landscaped urn garden in St. Lawrence County.

The Pines features 150 sites for one to two cremation urns with raised stone site markers, which are less costly than a full casket lot and remain attractive over time, as they don’t grow over with grass. Memorial pillars are also available to mount plaques memorializing those whose remains are not at Bayside.

Hydrangea, coral bells, coneflowers and ferns decorate the garden, along with a stone bench centerpiece for rest and reflection. Perpetual care of the garden and walkways is provided.

Sites in the urn garden are accessible to those with mobility impairments.

  • A Wedding

    In October 2019, Bayside was the site of the Shirtz wedding, on a lovely blue windless day with autumn color in the trees and on the ground. It had been many years since we hosted a wedding, if ever.
