  • Beautiful Olympic range view, street parking.
  • Peaceful and remote place. I was riding a bike and accidentally paid a visit.
  • Scenic cemetery. Beautiful location. Ground not well maintained.
  • I love it here. Beautiful place to watch the sunset and learn some history. And a place to pay respects while all of this is happening.
  • Beautiful but small park and cemetery. Sometimes there's a lone man playing the bagpipes and it makes my day. Quiet and serene
