Newton Cemetery & Arboretum
Created in the 19th century naturalistic style pioneered by Mount Auburn Cemetery in Watertown, Newton Cemetery is beautifully landscaped. Visitors are allowed to quietly view the grounds, but jogging, dog walking, food, and bicycling are not allowed.
The grounds are open from 8am to 6pm, every day of the year.
On this serene spot you will find four ponds, graceful hillsides, and over 26 species of unusual trees such as marshall maple, castor auralia, shagbark hickory, hardy rubber tree, zelkova, amur corktree, camperdown elm, and weeping beech.
