You’re Invited! Join Us for an Open House at Locke at Tower Park

Posted on November 11, 2021

We’ve been hard at work putting the finishing touches on our new, state-of-the art facility, Locke at Tower Park, located at 4140 Kimball Ave. in Waterloo. Now we’re excited for you to see it for yourself. Please join us for an open house to unveil our new location.

We have two open house events scheduled so you can see the space firsthand and learn about the new and expanded services available to the community. These include the Life Celebration Center with three large contemporary spaces overlooking the lake, where food and beverage service is available as an option; a state-of-the-art decedent care center including the Locke Cremation Service; and modern features, such as audio and video technology, a spacious outdoor patio, and ample parking. Locke at Tower park will also become the new home to Locke Continuous Care Grief Support.

Open House Dates

  • Friday, Dec. 3, 4–7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Dec. 4, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

We’ll kick off the event with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3. Everyone in the community is invited. There’s no need to RSVP, and food and beverage will be available. We also encourage you to share the open house details with your colleagues and others in the community.  

The New Locke’s

For generations, Locke’s has continually evolved to meet the needs of the community. Locke at Tower Park continues that tradition. However, that’s not the only change you’ll see around Locke’s.

To learn about the updates we have going on, be sure to watch our short video below.    


The updates are designed to help us better tell Locke’s story of serving the needs of the community, as well as continue evolving as those needs change.

“Locke’s is a family business, and we’ve made several changes to ensure everyone feels that sense of family at each of our funeral homes,” said Eric J. Locke, funeral director. “For instance, you may see the phrase ‘Generations of Compassion’ around. For us, it’s a reminder of Locke’s long history of care and our commitment to service. It’s a pledge, to honor that heritage while we look to the future.”

Same Locke Values

With all of the changes, however, we want to assure everyone in the community—you will still find the same compassion, experience, and expertise you have come to expect from Locke’s at all of our locations.

“We remain committed to serving the community,” Eric said. “We appreciate your support as we continue to evolve Locke’s services to meet your needs.

“The Locke family and our entire staff all look forward to the new facility,” Eric said.  “Our plan is to bring new jobs to Waterloo and add even more caring funeral professionals with the addition of Locke at Tower Park. We truly hope you’ll join us at one of the open house events.”
