Get a glimpse of the old South in the surroundings of this memorial park. The place is located in the East of the Baton Rouge and has been a city’s part since 1945. Right on the adjacent side of the place lies a funeral home that has been serving the citizens of Baton Rouge and offers a space for memorials. While the memorial park and funeral home may not be a happy place for tourists to visit, the eerie beauty and surrounding greenery is compelling enough for nature lovers to flock to this park. The park stretches over an area of about 70 acres and contains maintained lawns, a wild bunch of oak trees and stories bespeaking the past. Come to spend some moments of quietude amidst the lap of nature. It is not only close to the heart of the city but is easily accessible. Those who wish to explore more can look around the streets to find shops and food places for indulgence.

Greenoaks Funeral Home Reviews & Ratings
My siblings and I chose Greenoaks Funeral Home in Baton Rouge to provide services for our Mother. From the moment we first walked through the door and ongoing now, several weeks later, we have received professional and compassionate services, advice and support from the courteous staff. We are especially grateful to Deborah, Tasha and Sydney for the personal attention given to every detail of the arrangements and for providing a dignified and respectable ceremony. It was a very comforting experience to be among each of these ladies during our time of profound sadness and grief. Thank you to the entire staff at Greenoaks and especially to Deborah, Tasha and Sydney.
My family and I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Marvin Schaffer who catered to our needs for our funeral service. He is a very peaceful, humble, and compassionate human. He respected our wishes in every capacity. Extremely pleasant to work with. My family would also like to recognize Mr. Michael, who worked with the cemetery side of the service. He was also patient and compassionate towards our family. The entire staff graciously helped with our every need. I truly appreciate this company for all that they do.
My brother and I had a horrible experience here when our father recently passed and, given the nature of grief, it's only after everything occurred that we realize how terribly we were ripped off. Most distressingly, we'd wanted to know when our father was being cremated. Both of us called several times to find out when and were assured that we would receive a call. I viewed his cremation as a sacred time and wanted to observe it myself with stillness and prayer. No one ever called us. Instead, we got a call the day before the funeral telling us to come and pick up his ashes. I am disgusted by this huge oversight, but of course, nothing can be done now. In addition, had to pay 60% of today's value of a plot WE ALREADY OWN (from our brother who passed in 2003) to have my father's ashes interred in the same plot. We were sold a $500 solid bronze urn for my father's ashes -- and it came to us with a Made in China sticker on it, covered in a cheap velvet cloth that had a hole in it. What kind of people prey on the grieving and offer them cheap urns for $500 that will simply be buried immediately? If we could do it over again, I would have taken the ashes myself and sprinkled them -- at no cost -- on the plot we already owned and told Greenoaks to go to hell. ** After Greenoaks posted the response below, I emailed to try to talk this out with the funeral director. After over a week, no one has responded to my email. This place is not interested in customer service. **
Clifford was extremely compassionate towards our family. He was genuine and displayed a high interest in meeting our family’s needs to their exact specifications! We enjoyed his presence, and he even brought a smile to our faces during this dark time. Thank you Clifford for everything you did, you truly helped our family and made the experience bearable.
Went there to inquire about my final arrangements when the time comes. (I was checking out different funeral homes). The staff was very helpful and friendly. I found Jennifer Fisher was especially kind and informative. Great experience.
