Lakewood's Annual Earth Day Celebration
Lakewood is a unique green space in the heart of the city -- with 250 acres of ornate gardens, scenic vistas and endless knolls dotted with old-growth trees and rare and native plants -- all open to the public.
To celebrate Earth Day, we invite you to visit our spacious grounds and take a behind-the-scenes tour of our historic greenhouses that are still operating today. On the tour, you'll learn about Lakewood's horticultural history, sustainable practices and see what we have in store for this spring's flower beds.
After the tour, you can put your own green thumb to work and plant a perennial to take home and plant in memory of a loved one.
Make a day of it by taking a self-guided tour of the cemetery before or after your greenhouse tour. Self-guided brochures will be available at the event or by downloading the Lakewood Cemetery mobile app.
Greenhouse tour tickets cost $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
Due to the historic construction of the greenhouses, we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs or walkers for the greenhouse tours.
