Please note the following statement from Forest Lawn regarding the Pokemon Go game:
Forest Lawn Group Statement Regarding Pokemon Go™
The cemeteries in the Forest Lawn Group - Forest Lawn (Buffalo), St. Matthew's (West Seneca), Lakeside (Hamburg) and the Williamsville Cemetery - are sacred places where nearly 225,000 people rest under our perpetual care, and are joined by 1,700 annually. We welcome and fully embrace the responsibility, entrusted to us by their loved ones, to maintain the dignity of these very special acres.
While we eagerly welcome and strategically encourage all visitors to experience the beauty and serenity of our cemeteries, and certainly support the idea of getting young people to discover and explore important places in their community, we believe that recreational games such as Pokemon Go™ run counter to our commitment to maintaining the peace and dignity of our grounds.
We therefore join institutions such as Arlington National Cemetery and the National Holocaust Museum in respectively asking Pokemon Go™ enthusiasts to refrain from playing the game while on the grounds of any of the cemeteries in the Forest Lawn Group. Those who violate this simple request will be asked to leave the cemetery grounds.
