Beauty Abounds at White Haven Memorial Park

At White Haven Memorial Park our goal is not only to provide a beautiful, tranquil and respectful sanctuary for your loved one’s final resting place, we strive to make it a location for healing and happiness where families, friends and the community can come and enjoy the natural beauty of Pittsford, New York.

Come see our flowers and trees
Visitors of White Haven are able to peruse the grounds, enjoying beautifully manicured gardens with nearly 15,000 annuals grown in our very own greenhouse. The flowers include a colorful and bold mix of zinnias, marigolds, celosia, salvias, geraniums, dahlias and cannas. The park also boasts over 100 species of trees, with the largest being a red oak in the center of the grounds. Other tree species include:

  • Shagbark hickory
  • Nootka cypress
  • Kentucky coffeetree
  • Katsura tree
  • Japanese snowbell
  • Tupelo
  • Yellowwood
  • American fringetree
  • Goldenchain tree
  • Paperbark maple
  • Copper Beech

White Haven is a fully certified member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program with a Level 1 Arboretum Certification from the Arbnet Arboretum Accreditation Program.  This means we are committed to managing our park with natural settings, wildlife and most importantly, environmental impact in mind.    

Everyone is Welcome
So much more than a memorial park, White Haven has over 170 acres that are open to walkers, runners, bicyclists and even dogs (on leashes and picked up after).  Geocachers are also welcome to enjoy the grounds. The park contains a Nature Trail with several waterfalls, a forest recreation area that welcomes pets and a variety of other natural settings perfect for leisurely strolls. 

White Haven Memorial Park is a place for visitors to come and remember a loved one’s legacy and find solitude in nature. We are honored to share it with anyone who comes to enjoy our beautiful grounds.  We invite you to come here BEFORE a time of need to create happy memories that will comfort you in a more difficult time. For all of these reasons, please come and see all the beauty that abounds at White Haven Memorial Park.
