To reach Riverside Cemetery, turn west from the Trans Canada Highway
17 onto Oliver Road and drive about 3 kilometres. It is between
Lakehead University and George Burke Park on Oliver Road.
Riverside Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Thunder Bay. It contributes
to the expansive green space and the institutional nature of the
area. It was established in 1884 as a non-denominational cemetery
for the city of Port Arthur, and it has become a interesting time
capsule showing the growth and multicultural heritage of the city.
This is not a complete listing of all of the burials in this cemetery.
