right off the I80 freeway. Most of the city's historic figures buried here and wonderfully landscaped. Good place to take your dog for a walk as less crowded than the parks. more »
One of my favorite places in Sacramento! I discovered this cemetery years ago, when I took my overly rambunctious nephew here on free museum day, not realizing that the cemetery is always free. He loved it and could explore without knocking things over.

It is full of hills and well tended plants and a few cats. Great for a talk with a friend, or for thinking about life, or for taking your children for a walk!
Most beautiful cemetery I’ve ever been to and I have travelled to many countries. The flowers are amazing!
