A resting place of beauty, dignity, and caring

Sharon Gardens has been serving Jewish communities and synagogues of the tri-state area since 1953. A division of the Kensico Cemetery, Sharon Gardens is considered to be one of the most beautiful and modern cemeteries for families of the Jewish faith. Its rural setting on seventy-six acres in the Bronx River Valley and the surrounding Westchester foothills provides a serene and peaceful resting place in contrast to many urban cemeteries. Wide roads facilitate easy visitor access to all lots.
