Historic Oakland Cemetery

248 Oakland Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312 View Map

Oakland Cemetery is one of Atlanta's largest public parks and a unique oasis of history, sculpture, botanical gardens and wildlife. Located less than a mile from the heart of downtown Atlanta, historic Oakland is the final resting place for many of Atlanta's pioneers, icons and leaders.

Today, Oakland Cemetery is still used as a community park and is a valued green space in Atlanta. It is also a repository for stunning art and architecture. Elaborate mausoleums, soaring sculptures and effusive inscriptions speak of an age when the bereaved found consolation in extravagant expression.
