Second Saturday Gardens Volunteer Day

Event Date:

Saturday, October 14 at 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Oakland Cemetery’s Second Saturday gardens volunteer day will be held on Saturday, October 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

October’s volunteer day will be held at the same time as Oakland Cemetery’s Run Like Hell 5K. As such, please do not park or drive vehicles inside Oakland Cemetery or in the lot adjacent to the main gate on Oakland Avenue.

Limited off-street parking will be available adjacent to the Memorial Drive pedestrian gate. We encourage volunteers to utilize alternate means of transport, such as public transit or rideshare service. A bicycle rack will be located at Oakland’s main gate.

Second Saturday volunteers must enter at the Memorial Drive pedestrian gate. At the first intersection, turn right and continue down the path toward Jewish Flats and Jewish Hill. Registration will be in this area beginning at 8:45 a.m.

Please bring a water bottle and wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes and clothing appropriate for the weather. To ensure that we have enough tools and equipment for all of our volunteers, please confirm your RSVP if you plan to attend: To ensure that we have enough tools and equipment for all volunteers, please confirm your RSVP in advance by e-mailing
