This cemetery is a celebration of life! I go running here in the evenings and there are so many paths and trails and interesting things to see. People bike, run, walk, and learn to drive here. There is tons of activity at any time of day. There are entire sections of the park where you can't see anything but rolling hills and trees all around you. It's hard to believe it's in the middle of the city.
The cemetery is one if the closest green spaces to the Garfield, Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, friendship area. While it is a cemetery it is often used by folks including myself as a green space. There are parts of the grass that there are no grave stones and the wooded area that is great for traversing and exploring The area is well kept, with a thorough grounds crew. This also used to be. Great place for sledding, though only well after hours. Sadly this is no longer the case and there is a crew that seems to monitor the area late into the night. Running, biking and exploring is still great. A hike in the woods, a sit by the ponds or water fountains, this is one of my favorite green spaces in Pittsburgh.
