City Cemetery Set to Reopen
The cemetery will be accessible by the Christmas holidays. The majority of the areas at the City of Albany Oakview and Riverside Cemeteries are trafficable.
On Saturday, December 22, 2018, through Wednesday, January 2, 2018, the West Gate near the cemetery office will be open to the general public from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with no appointment necessary. All other gates will remain closed during this time due to the right of way debris staging and ongoing debris removal by contractors. All scheduled burial services over the holiday weekend will take place.
There is still some vegetative debris throughout the cemetery which will be addressed by the City of Albany work crews after the holidays. Facilities Management hopes to have all remaining pathway maintenance and vegetative debris removal completed in January.
Visitors are asked to be respectful and not to attempt to access or disturb areas which have been secured from public view.
