Reader: Cheesman Park lets you whistle, and bike, through a graveyard

You're not supposed to whistle in a graveyard -- but no one ever said anything about cycling. The view is wonderful at Cheesman Park, a former cemetary that is "said to still contain over four thousand bodies," says GBWalker76.

And those are just the ones below ground. The space above is rumored to be filled with ghosts.

But some readers get more specific about the nitty-gritty:

Says Fletchmonger:

Yes, Cheeseman Park, used to be called Mount Prospect Cemetery.The City bought it from the Feds for $200!I think your exact location was:Latitude +39° 43' 53.78", Longitude -104° 58' 4.72"
