About the Cemetery

Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery (KMPC) occupies 50 picturesque acres at the base of Dilworth Mountain adjacent to the Kelowna Golf & Country Club. 

Originally an Anglican Church burial ground at the turn of the century, this historical area of Kelowna remembers both pioneers and recent citizens who helped shape our community.
