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.

Very close to home and a great place to just get away for a quiet walk with yourself, your friend, or your dog. Pretty well cared for, although it is sad to see stones that have been vandalized never set up again and some older parts not as landscaped as the front, but there are paved roads, dirt roads, and...

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.

It would appear that everyone that has passed on has stayed in their graves. Those who are worried about the zombie apocalypse can rest easy that they will be safe in this area of Portland. The gravestones themselves also tell a story of the history of Portland, which is cool too.

Though the trails can be quite muddy in the springtime, this is a great place to bring a dog for some off leash time in the woods. We tend to park by the community garden at the end of Brentwood and pick up the trail behind the garden. You can also drive all the way into the cemetery and park... More

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.

We enjoyed exploring the Evergreen Cemetery on our walk of Portland. They offer tours but we just walked and viewed everything on our own.

Oddly enough you can get married in the cemetery. This is a beautiful, huge cemetery that boosts a historical chapel, Wilde Memorial Chapel. The Chapel is almost medieval in style and it's corner stone has 1902 engraved on it. It's set near the edge of the cemetery and I attended a wedding there. The cemetery is historic and the largest... More

The largest cemetery in northern New England. Highly recommend this beautiful historic garden cemetery. so many areas to explore: historic chapel, distinguised people buried here, lovely walking vistas, duck pond, Civil War vets galore. Don't miss Baxter family plot. WHen this was built, some families chose to have their relatives graves at Eastern Cemetery disinterred and were brought by oxen... More

In the back corner of the beautiful cemetery sits several ponds, home to ducks, frogs, turtles, geese, and many other lovely and surprising creatures. Beautiful place for walks or to sit and meditate.
