About She Climbs Mountains
She Climbs Mountains is a non-profit organization based in the Twin Cities serving adult women and girls ages 8-18 (Girls Rise Up) who have experienced mother loss through death at any age.

The Lakewood Garden Mausoleum
This event will take place in the upper level reception space of our beautiful Garden Mausoleum. This modern building was designed in 2012 by HGA Architects and serves as both an active mausoleum and a community space, making it the perfect location for grief and remembrance events.
Signs will be posted directing you to the event location or click here for GPS navigation through Google Maps.
Parking is available on any of the roads inside Lakewood’s gates unless otherwise noted with a no parking sign. Handicap parking will be available near the building entrance. Lakewood does not have an onsite parking lot – it is street parking only. This means you may have to park a short distance away and walk.
There is a bus that stops right outside of Lakewood’s gates, the Garden Mausoleum is about two “city blocks” away from the entrance.
There is a Nice Ride station available on 34th/Hennepin, and 36th/Bryant, just a few blocks away from our front gates. Lakewood has one small bike rack near the front gates. Please do not lock bikes to any of our signs or trees.
