Spring Tree Walk

March 23 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Stroll with us through Oakland’s amazing arboretum and learn from knowledgeable guides about some of our favorite trees!

Did you know that Oakland is home to more than 1,600 trees, from majestic oaks to mighty magnolias, to demure crape myrtles and dogwoods? Oakland’s trees feed and shelter wildlife, help reduce air pollution and provide welcome shade for visitors. Many stand as living memorials to generations past. Stroll with us through Oakland’s amazing arboretum and learn from knowledgeable guides about some of our favorite trees that truly shine in winter!

This tour starts at the main gate (main entrance at Oakland Avenue and MLK Jr. Drive) at 10:30 a.m. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in at the volunteer desk inside the Visitor Center (adjacent to the gate) before meeting at the main gate.

Spaces are limited, so we recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.

Accessibility

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. 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 before the start of the tour.
