This is a beautiful place to walk or ride Trolley. The plants and birds are great. The stones and cemetery are unusual and worth seeing. Spring and Fall are special

I love wandering around cemeteries. They're amazing - they've got history, architecture. Peace and quiet. I definitely need to go back to Green-Wood because it's way too big to see everything in one trip.

I know that during the Memorial Day Concert, people are picnicking everywhere and when my son had a field trip there, they ate their lunches on the grass. Hope that helps.
