Oakdale Memorial Gardens was established in 1857 and is an independent, non-profit cemetery located on 78+ acres along Eastern Avenue in the heart of Davenport, Iowa. It is one of the Quad Cities oldest and most beautiful cemeteries, boasting century-old Oaks, gently rolling hills and knolls, and a beautiful reflecting pond near the cemetery entrance.
Considered a rural or garden cemetery, Oakdale Memorial Gardens has graves dating back to the Victorian Era. Our most noted "resident" is the legendary jazz artist Leon Bismarck "Bix" Beiderbecke. The renowned cornet player's grave site receives thousands of visitors each year, bringing international recognition to the Quad Cities and Oakdale Memorial Gardens. Incidentally, Bix's brother, Charles Beiderbecke, was Oakdale's sexton at one time.
A variety of burial and entombment options are available, including: earth burial, public and private mausoleum entombment, above-ground columbarium (or niche) urns (indoor and outdoor), cremations scattering garden, with pricing to fit all needs.
The grounds also include "Love of Animals" Petland, a resting place for the animal members of your family. You are encouraged to visit the grounds and enjoy the history, beauty, and serenity of the park.
The park is open daily, during daylight hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
