It’s Tour Season at Forest Lawn – Bonus Tree Plantings!

Submitted by N Cardillo:

You know you’ve been saying it every summer:  “I’d really like to take that tour of Forest Lawn!”  Well, this summer, you’ll have more chances than ever, as Forest Lawn has extended its famous Sunday In The Cemetery tours: walking and history tours are available every Sunday through October 30 (except for July 3rd)!

And, best of all, prices remain the same as last year: $15 for the walking tours; $25 for the air-conditioned trolley tours.

Tours take approximately 1.5 hours, and in addition to learning about our famous residents (and meeting a few of them!), you’ll also learn about the art, architecture, history and nature that make up this beautiful 269-acre jewel in the heart of the city of Buffalo.

Forest Lawn is also pleased to offer Civil War, Women’s History and a very special Behind-the-scenes tour of Forest Lawn this summer.  Visit the website at for a full schedule and more information.

We’ve added some dates and kept last year’s prices.

Reservations are required, and tour times fill up quickly, so call today: 716.885.1600!!

The 500 linear feet of streambank being planted is located on the north shore of Scajaquada Creek, across from Mirror Lake, between two of the bridges that cross over the creek.
