Happy Memorial Day.
Below is info from the City about special visitation hours at Mission City Memorial Park (MCMP).
On Monday, May 25, MCMP will be open from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for Memorial Day visitation.
In compliance with the County of Santa Clara’s Public Health Order, the City will manage the total number of visitors allowed at one time in MCMP (to 100) to reduce crowding and risk of virus transmission.
Visitors are required to wear face coverings and abide by social distancing of at least six feet from others who are not part of one’s household.
Vehicle and pedestrian access will be limited to the Dolores Avenue entrance where visitors will be greeted by staff at the gate and provided with cemetery rules. Staff will monitor social distancing inside the park.
For more information about the City-owned cemetery, visit the City website.
“Happy Memorial Day” is incorrect. This is a solemn holiday to honor the Military men and women who died serving our country.
