Property Improvements - 2018

In the Spring of 2018,  various projects will be underway to beautify our cemetery.

1>  We will be installing an additional 31 water faucets throughout the entire cemetery to accommodate visitors and their request to water flowers/plantings.  With that will come trash receptacles to help keep the park clean. 

2>  The pruning of our fruit trees and removal of diseased trees will commence in April.  You will find a significant difference along our Historic Section 1 where it's currently crowded with trees.

3>  The entrance's planting beds will be revamped and the installation of granite signing will be completed by year's end.   This allows for maximum curb appeal and the ability to properly identify our Association from the street.

4>  Stump removal will start in certain sections of our cemetery to help beautify the grounds.

5>  An elaborate circular garden will be installed in Section 14 as a part of the beautification process/development of our newest section of the cemetery.

6>  The completion of the LCM's beautification project will compliment this sought after section of Willowbrook.

7>  The development of future Section 16/17 continues to be a priority and is currently being reviewed by our Boston-based landscape designer.   More information will be provided in the upcoming months.

8>  The beautification of Section 8 & 11's Cremation Gardens will begin in May and should be completed by July, 2018.  

9>  Dredging of our Brookfront will officially be completed by the end of 2018.  We have applied for the proper permits by Conservation and will a become a priority once the summer months arrive and the brook has dried up.

Here at Willowbrook Cemetery, it's our commitment to maintain a beautiful park-like atmosphere for our lot-owners and visitors alike.

Property Improvements - 2017

In the Spring of 2017,  two projects will be initiated to beautify and expand our cemetery.

1. LCM

The Lawn Covered Mausoleum (LCM) will undergo a complete landscape overhaul.   Grass will be stripped, the property leveled and all markers will be reset in a uniformed manner.   Additionally, the shrubbery which surrounds the perimeter of the section, will be removed to provide a more open feel. 

We apologize to those families in advance who will be affected by this, as there will be short periods of time when the section will be closed for entry.

The walkway will be installed either in the fall of 2017 or the spring of 2018.  We will also beautify this section with shrubbery, a flagpole and benches to sit for reflection.

2. Expansion of Section 14

Willowbrook has contracted to clear the right section of the undeveloped Section 14 to accommodate more than 100 additional graves.

This portion of Section 14 will be slated for non-denominational/non-sectarian burials. 

UPDATE:  The expansion is now available for retail.  Please check with our sales office for availability, as half of the property has been sold in a matter of a month!

May 27, 2017 - Westport, Conn.

The Board of Trustees and Management of Willowbrook Cemetery would like to extend their thanks to the local Boy Scouts of America, Local Troop 39!

The troop came out in force to canvass our expansive property to place American Flags on the graves of our residents who served our great Nation!

We look forward seeing you all next year!
