Please be advised that the ponds around the Pool of Reflection gardens will be drained for essential maintenance and restoration works.
It is anticipated that this maintenance will be completed by mid-May.
Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
Forest Lawn Management would like to apologise for the current presentation and maintenance of the park. Due to the recent weather event, Park Staff have been focused on critical remediation issues that have required immediate attention. Weather permitting, normal maintenance will be undertaken as soon as ground conditions allow.
Management thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding.
As part of our ongoing park maintenance, we need to control the rabbit population. If left unattended, the rabbits cause damage to sites and gardens throughout the Park.
An external contractor has been employed to manage the current population. Treatment will commence 1st March 202 to be completed by 19th March 2021 (weather permitting). Please be aware that during this time Pindone will be used on the grounds of the Park.
As part of Forest Lawn Memorial Park’s ongoing ‘Beautification & Maintenance’ program, please be advised that remedial work has been scheduled for the ‘Crypts of St Francis’. Work is scheduled to commence mid-late February 2021 and is anticipated to be completed towards the end of March 2021; weather permitting.
Maintenance work will include, but will not necessarily be confined to, the:
of the crypts and the surrounds.
Please be assured that family members that have been laid to rest in the ‘Crypts’ of St Francis’ will by no means be disturbed.
Due to the infestation of an insect pest and the potential risk of the pest spreading to other areas within the Park; advise sort from horticultural contractors was that the removal of the Pine trees located in the 'Stations of the Cross' section is the best option.
The pine trees will be replaced with two new plants in each of the garden beds. Plant type is yet to be determined as Management is awaiting advice from the horticulturalist on the best options available. The replanting is anticipated to occur in April.
If you have any queries regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact the Forest Lawn Office. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
