Looking very much like a beautifully maintained public park, Enfield Memorial Park is a green oasis and a focal point for the diverse local community.
There is real variety in the gardens and pavilions here. Traditional rose plantings complement secluded groves of ornamental trees. Water features wind their way amongst paths dotted with shrubs. The Mausoleum Precinct has its own quiet elegance, while the Buddhist Garden has been designed with the principles of Feng Shui in mind. Alongside it, The Cascades places bold modern metal sculpture in the midst of a grove of trees standing on sprawling lawns.
Families can choose from every type of burial and memorial site at Enfield Memorial Park, including the Natural Burial option available in the peaceful Wirra Wonga area.
Enfield Memorial Park is open to the public every day of the year and hosts a variety of community events.

Enfield Memorial Park Mausoleum
A blend of European tradition and contemporary elegance, this beautiful precinct offers an aura of quiet prestige.
There are choices of companion and single crypts within the air-conditioned Mausoleum building itself as well as outdoors in the peaceful courtyard area. Arranged over four levels, both single and companion interment options are available, each with a 99 year lease.
Families are welcome to personalise their crypt with gold leaf lettering, emblems, bronze embellishments and ceramic photos, creating a truly bespoke final resting place.
Whichever option you choose, you can now personally select and pre-purchase your crypt, providing you and your family with peace of mind.
The Cascades garden takes its name from its unique feature, a fountain bubbling with relaxing water that steps down through a curved stream wrapping around a central sculpture.
The tiered lawns here form a natural, open amphitheatre, a welcoming space that's perfect for small family gatherings and quiet reflection. The Cascades has proved very popular from its inception and offers a range of burial and memorial choices.
Wirra Wonga - Natural Burial
For those who've lived life in harmony with the environment, it's only natural to choose a resting place that reflects this attitude in an authentic way.
Wirra Wonga, the Kaurna term for ‘bush grave’, is a native bushland setting created using plants indigenous to the adjacent Folland Park Reserve. This natural, environmentally sustainable burial option involves interment in a bio-degradable casket or a simple shroud, with the remains returned to the earth naturally. While there is no physical identification of the person at the place of burial, each site is micro-chipped so current and future generations can easily locate their loved ones.
Capturing the essence of the Buddhist Faith and the principles of Feng Shui, the Buddhist Garden provides a calm and peaceful place of remembrance that can hold appeal for anyone, regardless of faith or ethnicity.The focal point of this harmonious garden is the Amitabha Buddha. Carved from grey marble, this impressive statue watches over the symmetrical gardens, which have been blessed with holy dews, transforming them to pure land.
The inclusion of land gods, incense bowls and offering tables caters for Buddhist customs and traditions, such as the offering of flowers and fruit and the burning of incense. To meet the needs of the community the garden offers a range of vault, traditional burial and cremation memorial options. These vary according to size, aspect and location, and include a selection of premium options close to Buddha. South Australia’s first and only public Buddhist burial and cremation area is popular with those of the Buddhists faith, as well as families who simply appreciate this unique garden of peace.
A new Full Monument garden for Enfield Memorial Park
Enfield Memorial Park is place that caters to a diverse community, each with an area to call their own, to visit, reflect and remember. Now another garden is being considered in the shape of a full monument area, proposed for development between the Existing Mausoleum precinct and the Charlotte Garden.
The proposed garden would cater for both earth burials and vault interments, allowing for full monumentation in a wide variety of styles.
Adelaide Cemeteries is currently seeking expressions of interest from families interested in seeing such a garden take its place at Enfield Memorial Park.
