Event Details

The Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation is inviting the community to explore one of Springfield’s most spectacular fall attractions at its 7th Annual Tree Tour, Saturday October 16, from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Oak Ridge Cemetery, 1441 Monument Avenue.  The 2021 fall tour will focus on the “Wishing Well” section of the cemetery and highlight 24 planted cultivars dating back as far as 1994, and hybrids that are found in almost no other area. 

 

Upon check-in, guests will receive a printed guide that explains each tree’s feature and significance on the landscape along with a map. The tour is self-guided with directional signage placed around the cemetery. The event will also feature a Kid’s Table to entertain and educate all ages of the family.

 

The Tree Tour is sponsored by the Oak Ridge Cemetery Foundation and is free. Donations are welcomed. Parking will be available by the GAR Mound located inside Oak Ridge Cemetery.
