Rural Cemetery & McDonald Neighborhood

August 16th  10am12pm Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery.

Take a stroll under the oaks through this historic cemetery. Then we’ll continue down McDonald Ave and return to the cemetery.

Here is nature and history in one intriguing space. And only 2 miles.

Meet at the McDonald Ave entrance on Franklin St. Some parking space on McDonald more on Terrace Way.

Walk is sponsored by the Sonoma County Family YMCA. You don't have to be a member and there's no cost.

Please no dogs. Service animals okay.

    I originally RSVP'd for this, but then I realized Veg Fest was on the same day. I hope this walk will be repeated as it sounded interesting.

    Very interesting walk. Loved seeing the old houses and hearing about the movies that were filmed there. Loved the cemetery and it was fun to learn who all were buried there. Thanks, Lynn for all your research. Yes, many photos will be posted soon...or tomorrow.

    Thanks for joining me today! Your energy was terrific. It wasn't a heart-racing walk, but I hope you found it interesting. I'm posting a couple of pictures of headstones we missed: Doyle - founder of Exchange Bank and SRJC scholoraships for all Santa Rosa seniors (recently restored). And a couple of time-lapse of Taylor the oak grew over. - Thanks again! (I'm sure Dianne will have many more pictures.)

    Maybe we could list the approximate miles of each adventure, I would like to know.

      About two miles - my walks are always two-three. I can't do more.
