Funded by California Natural Resources Agency, Community Foundation Santa Cruz County and local donors, this convenient, inclusive walkway is one of several additions and restorations to the beloved and bucolic area since 2015.

Experience the inspiring commitment to Evergreen, which features this and other significant projects, as part of the 2022 Santa Cruz Film Festival. The Restoration of Evergreen Cemetery directed by author Dr. Traci Bliss and produced by Andrew O’Keefe / Amotion, captures the spirit of community and volunteerism at its best. A focus of the short film is the Chinese Gate made possible by the philanthropy and vision of George Ow Jr., the expertise of historians Sandy Lydon and Geoffrey Dunn, and the artistry of Tom Ralston of Tom Ralston Concrete who also created the new ADA pathway.
