“The tulips are wonderful in Feb-March”

Mountain View Cemetery
Ranked #4 of 82 things to do in Oakland
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 August 2018

Every Spring I make a point of visiting the cemetery, respectfully, to photograph the tulips in bloom. Inevitably, there are others roaming around with serious cameras, and wielding cell phones to snap their friends in front of the flower beds.

Some of us just enjoy walking in historic cemeteries. If you are one, this is a few hours well spent. It’s large, and quite old, by Oakland standards, but still in active use. Many stones tell stories of gold-rushers, civic leaders, and philanthropists. We were there for about an hour and walked to the top of the hill. Nice views,

It’s a great place to walk around and enjoy the green grass and views.
Your visit gets the same great views as the dead get.
Historical as well as peaceful
Strangely, there seems to be lotsa trails to wander.

I used to walk regularly with a friend here. Many pathways and well-groomed flowers and grass. I was here on Saturday for a memorial celebration of a dear friend’s life. The small chapel was a perfect spot.

Found this gem after searching trip advisor. This is a nice place to go to for multiple reasons. Great views of the city, a lot of history, picnic destination, hiking, working out, or simply a walk. Plenty of people around, enjoying all these activities.

Best of all it’s free. Really take he time to see who is buried and do some research you will be surprised.
