Gate of Heaven Cemetery
Opened in 1983, the forested areas around Gate of Heaven Cemetery are at their best in the fall, when towering maple, oak and birch trees change colour, but any season is beautiful at this cemetery located at Old York Road and Snake Road in Burlington.
Resting within the cemetery are members of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny. A number of local parishes have sections set aside for members of their community.

It’s got an interesting geography, sloped, with trees all around it. Maple trees border most of the roadways and you can see the escarpment. Statues of Our Lady of Fatima and of Christ the King enhance my moments of solitude.
