My kids and I like to drive through this cemetery. They have some very cool old headstones and mausoleums. We have also seen several deer hanging out in the cemetery. It is a large cemetery located close to Lake Calhoun.

This is a beautiful place with nice views. It is visitor friendly and an easy tour on bicycle or car. There is a visitor's center and a map is available showing several points of interest.

This is a beautiful space. It is where Tiny Tim rests permanently. I have been here for funerals and other events. Their beautiful chapel hosts weddings also. The ground are gorgeous with reflection pond, sculptures and beautiful windows.
