The parking sign at the entrance, pointing to car parks (including one for buses and touring cars), and the wide asphalt road leading into the cemetery, suggest this cemetery must be huge. It is certainly big, but not as big as some of the other cemeteries in Utrecht, though.

It is a typical Dutch cemetery, with graves side by side in neat rows along paths. The cemetery is quite new, probably created in the 1960s, so there are no old graves (the oldest I found are from the 1970s).
