Westwood Hills Memorial Park

​Placerville, CA

Preserving a rich history in the heart of northern California gold rush country, Westwood Hills Memorial Park is the final resting place of many of the state’s “49ers” who flocked to the region in the mid-19th century in hopes of making their fortunes.

Visitors to Westwood Hills can enjoy a tranquil parklike setting that includes water features and walking areas.

The park’s “Meadow” is designated as a natural burial area. No machine-manufactured headstones are used, and only large, natural stones are engraved with the epitaph of your loved one.

A site of immense beauty

Westwood Hills Memorial Park is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near the El Dorado National Forest. Besides its natural beauty and immaculate upkeep, it offers many burial options.

Choose a natural burial or traditional burial within designated sections of the property, burial in the memorial park or interment in a cremation garden, cremation niche or the mausoleum.
