The grounds of this cemetery is very well maintained. I have been here a few times for cremation ceremonies which are in a beautiful area. The entrance of the cemetery looks straight out of the movies and they offer tours.

I’ve been visiting this cemetery for decades. It’s always beautifully maintained, uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. So many emotions run through you. It’s so nice to see people appreciating its lovely grounds. Historic and personal at the same time.

This 478 acre cemetery is like a park filled with beautiful sculptures from the 2800's. In those days it was a tourist attraction rivaling Niagara Falls! The highest point in zbrooklyn us here! Peaceful beautiful interesting place to lose yourself in for a few hours!

I know that during the Memorial Day Concert, people are picnicking everywhere and when my son had a field trip there, they ate their lunches on the grass. Hope that helps.
