Woodlawn is Toledo's edition of the "Rural Cemetery Movement" of the late 19th century. Well laid out with miles of curving roadways, ponds and a great collection of trees and shrubs. It is especially picturesque in the springtime when the flowering tress are in bloom; fall is another very colorful period. Pick up a copy of "Toledo's Woodlawn Cemetery" (Arcadia... More

Don't let the other poster fool you. I was once a teenager. And I used to sneak in there at night all the time. Never vandalized. Never tried to raise the dead loo. We just went there to get away for a few hours andsmoke ccigarettes. That review was hilarious though. It is a beautiful place.

This is not your typical historical cemetery where you walk around tombstones and memorials and chapels (which are greatly made by the way). This is also an arboretum where you can enjoy all sort of trees while you walk around ponds or crossing bridges over the Ottawa River. Look for free guided tours where docents explain about the history of... More

This cemetery is dangerous. it is widely known for being haunted, and many young kids hang around especially at night. They vandalize the cemetery and conduct witchcraft and seances in the surrounding park. It is a very dangerous place to go which is unfortunate due to the fact that it is supposed to be a place to let those who... More

The landscaping here is so wonderful...it's such a quiet beautiful place to visit on a not-so-great side of town. Some of the features of the cemetery are run down, like the old chapel. It's a shame that some benevolent philanthropist doesn't come along and donate the money to fix the place up! Woodlawn cemetery is one of Toledo's gems, in... More
