Friends of the G.A.R. Cemetery

The GAR Cemetery in Seattle, Washington was platted in 1896. It is located on the north and of Capital Hill in Seattle. The cemetery land is covered with grass, maple and oak trees and is fenced by tall shrubbery, which does not make it easily visible from the street. The cemetery is maintained by the Seattle Parks Department and the Friends of the GAR Cemetery Park.
FGAR has been a series of Small and Simple grants from the Department of Neighborhoods (DON) for the purpose of revitalizing Seattle’s Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery Park. FGAR does not have any specific development agenda but is interested in securing the future viability of the Grand Army of the Republic Cemetery Park.
Over the last couple years FGAR has worked with Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation to implement improvements outlined a long term conceptual plan put together with extensive community input and Parks Department review. Recent improvements include the removal/replacement of non-native plants with new low maintenance plantings and installation of new irrigation system.
Looking forward, FGAR is in the midst of improving the drive through area. See Phase II. We are also looking forward to another spring full of daffodils and work parties as our community continues its commitment to the GAR Cemetery Park.
