Guidelines for Recreational Use of Cemeteries

CEMETERY GUIDELINE

During these stressful times, many people have sought out Evergreen and Forest City Cemeteries for exercise and fresh air. Utilizing cemeteries for quiet recreation is allowed by the City of Portland; however, we require your respectful consideration and observation of the following guidelines:

 Paths & Trails

  • Limit recreational use to walking, cross-country skiing, and jogging. Please take balls, Frisbees, and other games to another location.
  • Leave flowers, trees, and other plants for the enjoyment of others.
  • Carry-in, carry-out trash.
  • In active cemeteries, such as Evergreen and Forest City, please be mindful of funeral services. Quietly and respectfully conduct your leisure in another part of the cemetery grounds.
  • Gravestones are fragile. For your safety and their preservation, please do not touch them.

Rules for Bringing Dogs

  • Dogs are prohibited in Western Cemetery and Eastern Cemetery.
  • Dogs are allowed in Evergreen and Forest City cemeteries on 25-foot leashes.
  • Please respect graves and gravestones when walking pets, and scoop after your pet, carrying out bagged waste.
