Welcome to Glendale Memorial Nature Preserve. Located in the Florida Panhandle in north Walton County, the Preserve offers the perfect resting place for those who would like to return to sanity and simplicity regarding death and burial.
Glendale Memorial Nature Preserve celebrates the life of the individual, provides a lasting tribute through nature, contributes to the future of life, and enables survivors to remember those whom they have loved and honored in a place of beauty, serenity, and solace. Our fields, creeks, ponds, and woods provide a living memorial to those who seek common sense alternatives to current burial options and wish to continue their stewardship of nature beyond the mere span of their years.
Nestled in a restored long leaf pine forest, the Preserve offers a tranquil setting on 350 acres. The burial space offers an outside chapel pavilion perfect for small gatherings, along with a boardwalk overlooking lake Barbara.
Our goal is to enhance, protect, and preserve a valuable area of distinctive beauty, provide affordable, environmentally sensible burial options, and to encourage a return to sane, older, traditional approaches to burial.
