Greenwood Memorial Park Funeral Home, Renton

#6 of 8 in Things to do in Renton
At Greenwood Memorial Park and Greenwood Funeral Home in Renton, Washington, we are honored to serve the Renton, South King County and greater Seattle community. The 40-acre memorial park was established in 1910 and is noted for its mature trees, serene setting and magnificent memorial to Jimi Hendrix, who grew up in Seattle and was laid to rest at the cemetery grounds.

The funeral home opened in 1984. Remodeled in 2017, the funeral home is fresh, modern and state of the art.

Greenwood Memorial Park allows families to take care of all of their burial and cemetery arrangements. Located on the cemetery property, Greenwood Funeral Home adds simplicity and convenience for those making funeral or cremation arrangements. Our caring, experienced teams are here for you throughout this difficult stage of life.

We are the one of the few cemeteries in the Renton area to offer exclusive private family mausoleums, a patio mausoleum, indoor glass-front niches, lawn crypts and a wide variety of cremation memorialization options such as estates, memorial benches, niches and columbaria. At Greenwood Memorial Park, we strive to meet every Seattle family’s burial needs and understand that choosing a final spot is an important and often emotional decision.

The 2 most impressive gardens at Greenwood Memorial Park are Garden of Eternal Peace and Lotus Garden. To honor the rich and vibrant Asian population in the Seattle area, these gardens have Asian-inspired features. Garden of Eternal Peace was built in 2006 and has a magnificent pagoda surrounded by upright monuments with curved Asian-inspired roofs, private estates made of brick and a relaxing water fountain. Our newer development, Lotus Garden, has a dragon water feature and offers private estates made of slate. You do not need to be of Asian descent to be interred in these gardens. Anyone is welcome to choose Lotus Garden or Garden of Eternal Peace as their final resting spot.

Seattle is a rich, vibrant and diverse community—and we are lucky to be a part of it. Greenwood Memorial Park and Greenwood Funeral Home hold several events throughout the year. Each April, we host Ching Ming, an annual Chinese festival for Chinese families to remember their ancestors and loved ones. Approximately 600 guests attend the event. We serve lunch, set off firecrackers and invite traditional dragon dancers. We also host an event on Memorial Day weekend to honor veterans and military families. During that event, we serve hot dogs and help guests find their loved ones’ final resting spots. Volunteers place American flags on markers and there is usually a flyover with a B-52 bomber.

  • Horrible customer service! Horrible communication. My adult children had to make arrangements for their Dad, and were treated without options given, we had to ask about options. Service was in October, and headstone is still not done. Everything has been paid for. Also review for services was not sent out as indicated it would be.
