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.

A beautiful,160 year-old, park-style cemetery with paths, mausoleums and a pond with turtles and ducks. Located in a suburban neighborhood and a wonderful place to walk or just spend time. The Friends of Evergreen Cemetery offers guided walking tours in summer.
