Historic Oakland Foundation is taking several precautions to make sure this is a safe and enjoyable experience.
- Tour capacity is limited.
- Vaccinated guests may remove their masks during tours, but masks are required to enter the Visitors Center and Museum Store.
- Stay home if you have been exposed to COVID or are feeling sick.
Finish out your date with lunch (dine-in or take-out) at one of our favorite Memorial Drive haunts. See a map of restaurants here.
Nearby restaurant Petit Chou is offering a special lunch discount for Love Stories ticket holders on February 12-14. Reservations are recommended.
- Not all areas of Historic Oakland Cemetery are wheelchair accessible. Please let us know if you need an accessible route when purchasing your ticket. There is designated parking for vehicles with a disability permit behind the Bell Tower Building/Visitors Center. This is the best option for parking as the main entrance is paved with cobblestones, and both the East Gate and Memorial Drive Gate entrances have either a step or curb.
- ASL interpreter available if given 3 days (72 hours) notice.
This is a rain or shine event. Parking inside the cemetery is limited, so please consider parking in the lot outside of Oakland’s front gate or on surrounding side streets.
