Grand View Cemetery May 2006


With the reports of the dying trees at Grand View Cemetery, I decided to go back to my GV photos and place together one of my pan shots from the cemetery.

This was taken in mid-May of 2006, just shortly before the water was shut off for good. I do remember a man on the property watering that day. It didn't look as good as it could have, but one of the last times it looked its best. Click this LINK for enlarged image.

It would be interesting, when the cemetery opens again, if someone could send us this exact same view to see the changes.

August 1, 2007 - Grand View Cemetery Reopening Delay
Because of the dry conditions, the reopening of Grand View has been pushed back until sometime in September. (Glendale News article up for the next 14 days) More>

"Glendale Fire Department officials placed an "Extreme Fire Hazard" sign on the cemetery's gates last week cautioning visitors of the danger there.

"As you can probably tell if you looked through the gate, it's because… of the condition of the landscaping," said Elaine Aguilar, assistant to the city manager."
