COVID-19 PROCEDURES

________

For more than 90 years, Alto-Reste Park has been focused on helping families going through difficult times, and that’s still our goal today. Like many businesses in our area, we have had to alter our normal operations because of the impact COVID-19 has had everywhere, but in spite of these obstacles...

We Are Still Open to Serve

We remain committed and prepared to safely care for the families we serve during the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the ceremonies that are most important to them.

We Are Still Taking Consultations

In spite of the obstacles, we are still committed to provide our community with clarity and comfort. We will help your family navigate any challenges they may face before, during, and after a loss, particularly in this trying time.

For the time being, though, we will be meeting with couples or individuals by appointment only. To make an appointment, please call (814) 944-0879.

We Are Still Receiving/Processing Payments

For those dropping off a payment, you are welcome to use the payment lockbox to the right of the main entry. You may also mail your payment to:

Alto-Reste Park

109 Alto-Reste Park

Altoona, PA 16601

If you wish to make a payment via Debit or Credit card, you may do so by calling (814) 944-0879.

Our Park is Still Open for Visitors

There are currently no restrictions for visiting loved ones who are laid to rest in our park. However, the CDC recommends that no more than 10 people gather together at one time and that social distancing be applied.

If you are trying to locate a particular grave, all grave locations are listed on our website (alto-reste.com/lot-locator). If you are having difficulty finding one, please call (814) 944-0879.

Stay safe. Be well. Together, we will get through this.

Welcome to Alto-Reste Park!

We have met with thousands of people regarding final arrangements, and they are always thankful they’ve made their decisions sooner rather than later. Pre-planning helps you avoid putting unnecessary stress on those you love and prevents them from emotional overspending on your behalf later.

We invite you to learn more about the wisdom and logic of pre-planning final arrangements:

Our “Total Care” Commitment

before, during, and after the loss of a loved one

BEFORE: There are many decisions that must be made when there is a death in the family. At Alto-Reste Park, we can help you plan in advance so your loved ones will not be burdened with these decisions regarding your final arrangements.

DURING: At the time of need, our staff will be here to support you any way that we can. We have the experience and insights that can help bring comfort during a difficult time and ensure that the life of your loved one is memorialized in a meaningful way.

AFTER: We know that losing someone you love is never easy. Our staff is here to help you navigate any challenge that you may face. We also offer a 13-week GriefShare seminar twice each year. GriefShare is a place where you can be around others who empathize with how you feel and the pain of your loss.

About Our Park

welcome-hp Alto-Reste Park, one of the most beautiful burial parks in Pennsylvania, has approximately 100 carefully developed acres in the over 325 acre park-like setting. Located on the edge of one of the most beautiful valleys in central Pennsylvania, the name “Alto-Reste Park” is particularly appropriate, since no matter how the suburbs of Altoona develop, nothing can impair the natural character of the property, which is materially enhanced by several acres of very attractive woodland.

Our History

history-hp In 1925, Robert P. Good’s vision of creating a modern cemetery in a beautiful park-like setting became reality. Mr. Good carefully planned the site of Alto-Reste Park so that “the remains of the departed would rest amidst scenes of cultured beauty in harmony with the environments.” With great forethought and attention to detail, he purchased the initial plot of land for the purpose of creating one of the most beautiful burial parks in the state of Pennsylvania.
