Visitors are welcome to enjoy the beautiful grounds at Ivy Hill. We ask only that visitors behave in a way that shows respect for those who rest here. While the cemetery is park like, it is not a public park; moreover, it is not public property, it is private property. We are dedicated to the preservation of the cemetery grounds as an attractive,  reverent  setting  for  the sacred  burial of the dead; accordingly, we ask and expect all persons entering the cemetery to observe our rules and regulations.

The cemetery  grounds  are open  from sunrise to sunset.   It is unlawful to enter the cemetery grounds after dark; violators will be prosecuted to fullest extent of the law.  During daylight hours, one may walk through the cemetery. Jogging is prohibited between the hours of  8:30 AM and  4:00 PM  (to prevent distractions when funerals are in progress or families are visiting graves). The use of recreational vehicles (such as bicycles, mopeds,  mini-bikes, go-carts, ATV's)  or equipment (such as roller blades,  skates,  skate  boards ,  cross-country skis, sleds) is not allowed in the cemetery.    NO PETS ( except for service  animals  aiding  the  handicapped,  law enforcement, cemetery security or belonging to the cemetery) are allowed, either loose, or on a leash, in the cemetery, at any time, for any reason.

While the cemetery is a space that is dedicated to the sacred burial of the dead,  its real reason  for being is to  serve the living.   In addition  to  creating an  atmosphere  of peace  and sanctity for visitation  by  family  members,    we serve  our community as repository of history and as haven for wildlife. Please visit us and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. We ask only that you behave in  a  way  that shows respect for the memory of those who sleep beneath  the  oaks  at Ivy Hill,  and  is  in harmony  with  the atmosphere of dignity and peace which their family members have a right to expect us to maintain.
