Complete funeral care

Mike Savage of Legacy Funerals at Legacy Gardens, Papamoa.

The recently opened Legacy Gardens at Papamoa has added to Legacy Funeral’s already impressive array of venues.

Legacy has three dedicated funeral venues – Tauranga Park, the historic Woodhill building, and now Papamoa’s Legacy Gardens. Services can also be held at any church or alternative venue.

Tauranga Park is a spacious, contemporary funeral home for both small and large funerals. Located at Pyes Pa, it is so-named as it is located in park-like surrounds. Woodhill was built in 1885 and is a classic Otumoetai villa of distinction. It is one of Tauranga’s most iconic and historically significant buildings. Woodhill’s chapel suits funerals attended by up to 100 people.

Set in newly-landscaped surroundings on the corner of Ashley Place and Te Okuroa Drive, Legacy Gardens is more than just a funeral venue – it is also a wonderful facility for the Papamoa community to enjoy. Legacy Gardens features a modern chapel (which seats 200) with exterior water feature, catering lounge, on-site kitchen, meeting rooms, reception lounge and courtyard.

Legacy Funerals is the only Tauranga funeral company offering complete funeral care. This is possible as Legacy has a state-of-the-art cremator at Tauranga Park as part of its commitment to excellence and holistic care. Furthermore, Legacy Gardens includes the Western Bay of Plenty’s only columbarium. This is a respectful place, which you can visit, where urns holding loved one’s ashes are stored. The design of Legacy Gardens has included a focus on beautiful places for reflection and remembrance.
