Riverside Cemetery is a lovely peaceful place where many come to walk visit, grieve, birdwatch, and enjoy the trees.  All of this takes place in an urban/suburban area surrounding our 50 acres.  As such, everyone must take personal responsibility for safety and security.

Because we do not wish to penalize the very ones who have a right and reason to be at Riverside Cemetery by limiting their access, we ask our families and visitors to keep in mind that there is reason to exercise safety and security measures for those who visit and for items left at gravesites.  All cemeteries experience some theft and all in our society must exercise safety.  Riverside has taken the following measures:

  1. We encourage all patrons NOT to leave any items at grave sites and inform families that they are solely responsible for theft or damaged of their articles and items of personal property at grave sites.. 
  2. We have formed a volunteer Cemetery Neighborhood WATCH group to be a presence for good behavior as well as eyes and ears to both management and the Norwalk police.  Our volunteers may be present at any time of day or night on the cemetery grounds and carry their Riverside IDs.
  3. We strongly discourage anyone from being present at the cemetery after dark.
  4. We have gated off certain areas.
  5. We have installed seven (7) security cameras around the cemetery and will be adding more over time.
  6. We have alerted Norwalk police who are frequently on and off our property at all hours of the day and night.  
  7. Our personnel traverse the cemetery grounds often throughout every day.
  8. We are increasing enforcement of all cemetery rules and regulations.

Our Goal:  For all to continue to find a meaningful experience here at Riverside Cemetery and to continue to make it a beautiful place to be.

To do so, we ask all to please...

     Abide by the cemetery regulations.

     Do not walk alone.

     Do not enter the cemetery after dark.

​     Do not make your family's grave site an invitation to theft.
