Oakdale Cemetery staff are preparing for our annual spring cleanup event at Oakdale Cemetery. If family
members have artificial flowers that are in poor condition, potted flowers, or baskets in place at a
grave that they want to keep, please remove them by April 18.
Any items not removed by April 18
will be removed up and disposed of by city staff. Permanent items such as vases that are part of the
grave marker will not be removed by staff. As a reminder, shrubs, bushes, trees, and perennial
flowers are prohibited from being planted in the cemetery and will be removed at the City’s
For questions about this project, please call the Public Works Department at (828) 697-3084
