Established in 1855, Evergreen Cemetery's 239 acres make it the second-largest cemetery in Maine. The cemetery features a park area with four ponds and a network of moderately sloping paved trails. The back half of the cemetery—to the west—is much wilder and more wooded. The trails are mostly level, but have been left natural, with packed earth and exposed tree roots. Evergreen Cemetery is well-known for its exceptional birding—from feeding the ducks in the ponds to experiencing the spring migration of a wide variety of songbirds. The undeveloped north west end of the cemetery is a City-designated off leash area for dogs, where dogs may walk unleashed as long as they are under voice command.

Very nice, and easy walk. Very quiet considering you are right in Portland.

Nice set of trails right here in Portland. You would not even know you were in the city. Several ponds offer a variety of wildlife.

Nice set of trails. We were geocaching and used the flat trails. Beautiful cemetery and pond area. Watch the dog when sharing the trails with bikers.
