Early in 2013 the Board of Directors of the Ballston Spa Cemetery Association began investigating the possibility of improving and redesigning this entrance. This access to the cemetery has been an eyesore for many years. It is the primary entrance which most visitors and funeral processions use to enter the grounds.
We decided to hire the LA Group to come up with design options for the project. The LA Group has extensive experience with cemetery design, including Arlington National Cemetery and the Saratoga National/Gerald B.H. Solomon cemeteries.
After several months of design work and fine tuning, a plan was finalized and a contractor selected to perform the improvement work. This work was completed in mid-June of 2015 and the results are obvious.
In the Fall of 2015, the cemetery was awarded by the Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association for the ‘Best Landscaping Improvement’ project in the village.
