Prairie Sky Cemetery is the first new cemetery built by The City since 1940, when Queen’s Park Cemetery opened in Calgary’s northwest.
Phase one of the new cemetery opened in summer 2021 and is envisioned to be a contemporary public space that offers Calgarians a peaceful place to lay their loved ones to rest, pay their respects and connect with nature. The natural setting and rolling fields of the cemetery provide beautiful views of the mountains to the west. Traditional offerings of upright monument and flat marker graves are available, along with Calgary’s first green burial section. Green burial offers the opportunity for a natural burial without the use of embalming, concrete liners, and other non-biodegradable materials. Cremation offerings will include ground burial, scattering and columbarium placement.
Each summer, The City of Calgary offers free, guided walking tours of Burnsland, Union and St. Mary's Cemetery. Learn more or watch a virtual tour.
The City of Calgary helps citizens honour loved ones buried in City cemeteries through several annual special events. Learn more about upcoming events.
