Leaf Walk Tour
November 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFREE
In the months of September, October, and November we offer a two-hour walking tour of the cemetery and arboretum as the foliage transitions through the rich colors of Autumn. This tour will be led by one of the cemetery’s Master Guides who will convey highlights of the cemetery grounds, horticulture, and a variety of intriguing historic figures who call Bellefontaine their last address.
- Tours will cover about 2 miles across moderate terrain.
- Please wear appropriate summer walking attire.
- Attendance is limited and reservations are required.
- Please arrive between 15 to 20 minutes before tour time for a prompt departure.
Tours are free; however, donations to the Friends of Bellefontaine Cemetery are gratefully accepted. Make a gift by clicking here.
We are starting to offer small, socially-distanced group tours but space is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Sign up now if you are interested, but please keep your reservation(s) or cancel with enough notice as space is limited.
We are also offering some Zoom video conference presentations for those not comfortable leaving their homes. You do not have to have your camera turned on to see our presenter’s screen to watch the presentation.
We are also inviting people to take self-guided tours through Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. You can drive through the cemetery along 14 miles of paved roadway, or tour our newly painted white line route from the comfort of your car. You can also walk through the cemetery and practice social distancing, keeping at least 6 feet apart from other people who may be visiting the cemetery at the same time. Dog walking is permitted, but please follow our leash laws and clean up after them. You may also ride a bike through the cemetery by yourself or with a friend. Safe social distancing is recommended for all cyclists, too.
We have maps in a box right outside of our main office door, which is located immediately on the right as you enter the cemetery gates at 4947 W. Florissant. You may tour Bellefontaine Cemetery from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Cemetery gates are locked promptly at 5:00 p.m.
