Ten Things To Do During Your Visit...

*Inventory, photograph, paint or view our wildlife.

*Bring a sketchbook or a notebook and spend some quiet time on one of our benches. Let the beauty and the history inspire your creativity.

*Hike or jog the perimeter of the cemetery, enjoying the view from many perspectives. Climb our hill for a fresh look.

*Check out our historic swale, our perennial mounds, and our wildflower meadow (all located in the eastern half of the grounds).

*Check out our scent garden and our bulb and wildflower garden (both on the historic side of the cemetery). Enjoy our changing foliage. (Where else can you find a Nepal Camphor, native to the Himalayas, in Davis?)

*Soothe your soul listening to our Veteran Memorial Fountain.

*Take a meditative walk on one of our labyrinths.

*See the latest Gallery 1855 exhibit inside our iconic office building.

*Look at the lovely statues and historic stones. (Can you find the one that came all the way from China? Hint: it has wonderful dragons.)

*Discover Davis history (Can you find the headstone of the woman born in 1796?)

DID YOU KNOW? We have six markers over 12 feet tall, four that range from 8-12 feet, and some thirteen between 6-8 feet high; they include eight obelisk markers and four full figure statues. 28% of all city council members are buried here, as are 24% of all persons for whom UC Davis buildings are named.
