This is a wonderful memorial to those who lost their lives and hopefully a reminder for us to do better. We borrowed one of the folders from the man who volunteers here, which was very helpful.

There is pedestrian access around the grave sites. You need to visit the Salem witch museum first to have an understanding of the people whose headstones are here today.

Definitely would see this and the cemetery is next door to this. Worth walking around in. The cemetery is not wheelchair accessible just in case anyone needs to know.

The park is very, very small. You would not let your dog go loose and you can have a dog.

There are no hours. It is open 24/7 and no admission is required. Although the area that it is in can get very crowded in October.

You can walk to the benches for free, and through the old cemetery, but you should not sit on the benches, or walk over any of the graves/stand on them.
