5 Popular Places Where People Scatter Ashes of Loved Ones

With the growing number of people choosing to be cremated, the amount of people scattering ashes of loved ones is also on the rise.

There are endless places to scatter ashes of a loved one – we just boiled it down to five popular ones…

  1. Rose Garden

Who doesn’t want to be among beautiful roses that bloom and smell good?  This has traditionally been one of the most popular options, especially among women, because don’t all women love roses?  The trick is to find a beautiful rose garden where you can do this.

  1. Ballpark

What fan wouldn’t want to be memorialized at his or her favorite ballpark and be present for every future game (and hopefully pennant)?  Fenway in Boston and Wrigley in Chicago are the most popular ballparks where people have brought in the ashes of a beloved fan and scattered. With the Cubs recently winning the world series, it’s creating a spike in Cubs fans looking to do this. Of course, we have to mention that this is not permitted and we can’t recommend this. Being caught scattering cremated remains at a major league ballpark could result in fines and potentially jail time.

  1. National Park

With their beautiful surroundings (well, at least most of them) and serving as popular family vacation spots for decades, many people choose to have their ashes scattered in National Parks.  Each park has its own rules and regulations associated with scattering ashes so check first before making the trip out.

  1. Vacation Spot

Being 'bogged down' for years with work and other commitments in life, who wouldn’t want to be memorialized at that favorite vacation destination... the white sand beaches in Hawaii, the mountain peaks in Colorado, the vineyards in Napa, Lake Tahoe, Martha’s Vineyard, the Florida Keys, big sky country in Montana, etc.

  1. Home, Sweet Home

This is still the most popular spot to scatter a loved one’s ashes. Many people love the idea of being memorialized at home, making it easy on the family. The family doesn’t have to worry about finding that perfect rose garden or getting permits and approvals to scatter somewhere else. It just makes sense for many people and it’s a great place to be memorialized.
