Lake View Cemetery Walk

When: Mon., May 9 2011

Lake View Cemetery — "Cleveland's outdoor museum" — has a full roster of weekly tours, events, and nature walks that may or may not match your schedule. So it's worth remembering that drop-ins are always welcome to stroll the grounds, enjoy the landscape, and ponder the dual puzzles of history and mortality. The business office, located just inside the gates at 12136 Euclid Ave., offers a wealth of resources. Want to see the grounds from the comfort of your car? Pick up an audio-tour cassette or CD for $5. Prefer to walk? Grab a $3 map and trail guide. Want to know more about early settlers? Check out the free Past and Present brochure, with a guide to 32 historic grave sites. Or buy a copy of Cleveland's Cemeteries, Cleveland's Lake View Cemetery, or Cleveland on Foot for tours of your own devising. No matter how you choose to explore, remember that cameras and dogs on leashes are welcome. Bicycles, skateboards, and motorcycles are not. Today's office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learn more at or by calling 216-421-2665. — Cicora
