Garden of Rest


In 1960, the City of Villa Rica established Garden of Rest Cemetery because space at Hillcrest Cemetery was running low. Garden of Rest has 36 double plots for 72 gravesites on a portion of a seven-acre parcel. 


In 2016, the Villa Rica Cemetery Committee expanded the cemetery to add burial plots and other upgrades, including a paved driveway, trash receptacles, and signage.


In 2020, the Friends of the City Cemeteries began improving the cemetery's landscaping by adding flower beds around the front sign and creating a remembrance garden with a sitting bench in the back.
