Oakwood Cemetery has been around for over 150 years, and is home to over 100 acres of beautiful landscape right adjacent to the historic Oakwood neighborhood. Nice for a stroll or to explore if you're in the mood for a peaceful escape.

Nice place for a run or evening walk, if you're looking to escape downtown for a bit.
