My father and sister are buried here and I and my husband will join them in the future. Knowing lively pursuits are taking place in the cemetery is comforting to me. I would hope the cemetery officials in future will prioritize the maintenance of this beautiful premier cemetery rather than prohibit joyous activities. The unkempt lawn in the photo is disappointing and very concerning. I suggest the cemetery officials get their priorities in order.

My dad and sister are buried there and I and my husband will join them in the future. I would love to know that activities including walking dogs are allowed. How lovely for a dreary cemetery setting to have lively pursuits taking place. I find the unkempt grass in the photo very unimpressive and this is what the cemetery officials should be concentrating on. It looks dreadful and neglected.

Thanks for adding your voice.

It is inappropriate to require people to drive to visit the cemetery and force them to buy or rent a car to pay their respects to the dead. It is not the intention of the founders of the cemetery to create such a burden on visitors.

I strongly support locals being able to take advantage of walking / exercising through this “Jewel of the Emerald Necklace”, as was intended when designed.

It makes me sad to think of being buried here without the joy and life of, well, living around us.

Today we were not even allowed to walk our bikes through the cemetery and then when we already left and cycled outside of the cemetery, the priest almost overrun us with excuse that he is trying to get to the funeral as soon as possible. It has happened on the public road with a huge sigh share the road.
