Pleasant View Memorial Garden - Eden Cemetery Garden of Eden and Pleasant View Memorial Garden is located in Burnsville MN, Corner of Highway 13 and Portland Avenue.


Pre-arranging burial plans is the Islamic way. Purchasing burial lots ahead of need makes considerable sense. Aside from enabling the Islamic cemeteries to pay their debts, it protects families from the soaring prices of burial lots. Pre acquisition of burial lots provides peace of mind and relieves families from a heavy burden at the time of death.

Garden of Eden Islamic Cemetery offers burial lots for less than half of the current prices charged by other local cemeteries. Furthermore, Garden of Eden Cemetery offers special discounted prices for multiple lot purchases for families, mosques, or Islamic ethnic group.

Lebanon Cemetery, Apple Valley Firefighters memorialApple Valley Firefighters Tribute and Memorial

The Apple Valley Firefighters Tribute and Memorial is at the Lebanon Cemetery located at County
Road 42 and Pilot Knob Road. The Memorial was dedicated in 2006 to honor the Apple Valley
Firefighters and is surrounded by a walkway which signifies the Community. Paver bricks purchased
by the Community supported the construction of the Memorial just as the Community supports the
Apple Valley Fire Department (AVFD) with fire stations, trucks, equipment, and financial support.

Each monolith will have space for 280 names (to be engraved on two sides) for a total of 1,120 names. When a firefighter earns his or her badge, which takes one to two years, the firefighter’s name will be engraved. To date, there are 270 names to be engraved. It will take approximately 160 years until the memorial is full.
