About Us

Latvian Memorial Park in the Catskills

The Latvian Memorial Park is a Latvian Cemetery in the Catskills - a final resting place and memorial. It was established by the Latvian Disabled Veterans Association in the 1960os. The cemetery has urn spaces in niches (3 sections), in-ground urn spaces (1 section) and burial plots (limited selection of burial plots). The cemetery does its best to keep the ground neat and inviting - please come visit us!

Organized burial ceremonies take place twice a year: at the end of May (Memorial Day weekend) and in the fall. The fall ceremony in 2021 took place Saturday and Sunday, October 2/3. 
It was different than traditionally, each urn blessing ceremony was separate with an appointed time. We conducted the spring 2022 ceremony on May 28/29 in the same way. We will be having the candlelight service on Saturday but a shorter service 1.30 pm on Sunday. Due to the positive response from the previous two ceremonies, the urn blessing ceremonies will continue be individual, by appointment, however for the fall ceremony 2022, we will also offer shorter ceremonies right before the service as there have been more requests for that time. To secure an appointment, please write or call! Ceremonies are led by Deacon Linda Sniedze Taggart. The fall ceremony for 2022 is planned for Columbus Day weekend Ocrtober 8 and 9, 2022. The spring ceremony in 2023 is planned for May 27 and May 28.

The board of the Latvian Memorial park always encourages visitors, however, due to COVID for the times of the blessing ceremonies, we ask that only those attending a ceremony visit the cemetery. Others please kindly choose another time to visit the ceremony. The candlelight service on Sunday and service on Sunday are public events and everyone is welcome.
