Cemeteries

The City of Penticton currently maintains two cemeteries:

  • Lakeview Cemetery (located at 775 Lower Bench Road)
  • Fairview Cemetery (Anglican - located on Fairview Road - closed to new interments)

Note that we currently do not allow the pre-purchase of regular or cremation graves. A Resident is defined as any person who has resided or owned property within City limits for a period of six months immediately preceding the purchase of a Certificate of Entitlement to use a Cemetery plot.

The City has a unique final resting place for its citizens in the form of Lakeview Cemetery's Columbarium Gardens. The Gardens are located in the south east corner of Lakeview Cemetery, nestled below the 'Penticton' sign on Munson Mountain. Features of the Columbarium Gardens are a beautiful reflection pool, a water wall, and lush landscaping. The gardens are designed to provide visitors with a quiet and serene place to reflect and remember loved ones.
