Wellington Cemetery to be closed to vehicles
The Wellington City Cemetery will be closed to vehicle traffic over the Memorial Day holiday.
Visitors will be able to park and walk to the graves of loved ones.
Mayor Ben Blackburn explained that the restriction on traffic is necessary to protect gravestones and grounds during the holiday. When there are a lot of cars on the narrow access roads at the small cemetery, drivers are sometimes tempted to drive around a parked vehicle and could do damage when leaving the road.
