This cemetery stroll offers a way to get outdoors and learn more about local history in a beautiful environment. With over 250 acres and over 11 miles of roads, Lakewood is happy to provide a safe place to walk.
We are excited to release this Private Mausoleums Cemetery Stroll—a self-guided walk that shares the history and artistry of some of Lakewood’s remarkable private family mausoleums (above-ground memorial buildings). Along the way you’ll see some of the finest examples of funerary architecture in the country, and learn a bit about the Minnesotans entombed in these grand sepulchers.
You can print off this Cemetery Stroll at home and bring it with you to Lakewood, or you can follow along right on your smartphone!
As you stroll, please kindly keep a few things in mind:
- Lakewood is an active place of remembrance where families mourn loved ones—some recently lost. For this reason, we ask that you limit your activities while here to visiting, walking, quiet reflection and exploring the beautiful scenery and art. Please be mindful and respectful of other families’ graves and private graveside services.
- Please leave pets and food at home, and avoid recreational activities.
- You may park anywhere on the cemetery roads. Just be sure your vehicle won’t interfere with traffic.
Thank you, and enjoy your stroll!
