I suppose that if you're into cemeteries, this is a good one. We visited my grandparents' graves in the family plot. It's a big place, lots of runners, walkers.

We spent most weekends last summer taking the myriad tours of the cemetery. The docents are knowledgeable and eager to engage in discussing many aspects of Portland's history: Prohibition, women's rights, Civil War, artists, maritime history. Besides being a great way to get to know...More

Largest cemetery in maine. Even has guided walking tours. A chapel with weddings. 3 small ponds in the back. Not for swimming but we use to skate there as kids. I'm not sure if they are still plowed.

This is great spot to watch birds on their migration route. Evergreen Cemetery is a huge dark area at night that birds can drop in on as they migrate. Trees, woods and ponds are attractive to the temporary visitors who fly from tree to tree.
