In partnership with GEEARS: The Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students, Historic Oakland Foundation is taking part in the Mayor’s Summer Reading Club on Saturday, June 18! Join storyteller LaDoris Bias-Davis for a reading of Atlanta, My Home, a surprise activity, and a mini-tour to explore the sights and symbols of Oakland Cemetery! This hour-long program is perfect for children ages 3-5. This program is free and open to the public. Registered kids will receive a free copy of Atlanta, My Home. To ensure that each child receives a book, we are limiting spaces to 25 children. Advanced registration is required. 

Not all areas of Historic Oakland Cemetery are wheelchair or stroller accessible. The main entrance is paved with cobblestones, and both the East Gate and Memorial Drive Gate entrances have either a step or curb.

Complimentary parking is available in the gravel lot outside of the Main Gate at the corner of MLK Jr. Dr. and Oakland Ave. This parking lot is not monitored. You can find a map here:
