Although this cemetery is right beside U.S. Hwy 62, it can be tricky to locate the entrance. On this high-speed road, you will fly by before noticing the cemetery behind the low wood fence.
Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren: go west on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) along the Allegheny River. US Hwy 62 will join with US 6 before leaving Warren and the highways will become a free-access 4-lane. After passing the Ludlow exit, the road parallels the Allegheny River and rises over a railroad track. The highway curves to the left. On the right look for the sign to Scientific Road. Slow down now, because the very next right will be the entrance to Memorial Park.
The entrance road leads straight up into the grounds. Be sure to stop at the admin building (on the left) for assistance in locating gravestone locations - the staff is very helpful.
A stroll through the cemetery...

Thelma and George Ferver started the Memorial Park in 1954.
One of the first areas developed was the Garden of Devotion.
Take the first right as you enter the grounds to find this site. Especially beautiful as the crabapple trees flower in the spring.
The walkway, above, leads up to
a stone Bible with “The Lord’s Prayer” inscribed on two pages.
The “Loving Doves” fountain piazza.
Almost all the gravestones are in-ground.
