I would love to stroll around on my bicycle, because it's so large. It's a beautiful cemetery to visit. Surprisingly a lot to see. Right next to Lake Calhoun too, so very convenient for a side trip.
Just loved this place. GREAT memorial services in honor of military. Has lots of events that you can come with family to visit loved ones. Very quiet...can't hear the city noise once in park away from the hubbub of the buildings. Gorgeous architecture and history. They take great care of he grounds. Tours are offered; lots of walking, but very... 更多

The staff at the main office was very helpful in... 更多
Lakewood is a treasure within the city limits by Lake Calhoun. If you have an afternoon to spend just walking around the beautiful memorials, you will likely find many famous people are laid there to rest. The Chapel is spectacular and a must see if you do go to Lakewood.
No way to talk to anyone. Only a kiosk for locating a gravesite and the computer was not working. A map on the wall of the kiosk area was so high, I couldn't see section 20 where Find-A-Grave.com said the grave was located. Spent about 1 hour and then finally found the grave after walking the entire time, up and... 更多
