September Trolley Tour

September 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Lakewood Cemetery
Purchase Tickets

Hop aboard a historic trolley and enjoy a guided tour of Lakewood’s 250 acres of park-like beauty and storied history. We’ll explore Lakewood’s history from our landscape to our beautiful buildings, dive into the stories of some of Lakewood’s notable residents, and see artistic monuments and sculpture.

Where to meet

This tour will start at the beautiful and historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel. 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. Lakewood does not have an onsite parking lot – it is street parking only.

If you choose to take public transit, there is a bus stop just outside of Lakewood’s front gate, then a short walk from the gate to the chapel.

Bike parking is also available at a bike rack near the front gate at 36th/Hennepin. Please do not lock bikes to trees.

Accessibility Information

  • The trolleys are wheelchair accessible. Please email to let us know if you need wheelchair access for your trolley tour, so we can make sure the wheelchair seats ready and available when you arrive!
  • Tour guides will wear a voice amplifier so all attendees are able to hear the tour.


Restrooms will be available at the beginning and end of the tour in the chapel. Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of the chapel, we do not have wheelchair accessible restrooms available.
