South Park Memorial Day Walk
May 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Curated annually by residents Betsy and Galen, This year’s South Park, Woodland Cemetery, Memorial Day Walk is Monday, May 27, at 10:00am.
Please meet at the main entry gate at 118 Woodland Ave., Dayton, OH 45409.
This year’s theme is “No Matter Where You’re From, We’re Glad You’re Our Neighbor.” Join us as we mark the graves of four immigrant families and individuals who made their home in South Park in 1920. They arrived seeking opportunities not available in their homelands, and settled in a neighborhood more diverse than it has become a century later.
Join neighbors for a free, casual stroll through the spring foliage on the grounds of Woodland Cemetery. Feel free to bring flowers from your own yards to help decorate the graves. Leashed pets welcome.
Woodland Cemetery is very hilly, please note to be prepared for big elevation changes on the walk and tripping hazards may require special attention during your visit.l
