Bonus points

My friendly neighbourhood cemetery is two blocks from my apartment. The area is vast, about 100 acres. For you city slickers that is about 10 city blocks by 3 or 4 city blocks, it isn't strictly rectangular. My walks take me through here every few days.

In the blurry distance is downtown. It isn't as far as it appears, I walk there in about 60 to 90 minutes depending on where I'm headed and how much dawdling I do.

Who can guess the name of this cemetery? 1000 bonus points will be awarded to the subscriber with the first correct answer.

The Rules. One answer per household. Employess of Mountain View Cemetery (d&@n!!!), their family, friends, ex-friends, ex-spouses, future spouses, citizens of Vancover, ex-citizens of Vancouver, wannabe citizens of Vancouver and those who wouldn't live here if I paid them, are disqualified.

The Disclaimer. There is not now, never has been, and never will be, a bonus points program on Vancouver Daily Photo by wayne.

could it be tenblockhill graveyard?

seriously I haven't a clue how long a "city block" is - reminds me of the news readers that describe places as being the size of ten football pitches or twenty tennis courts!

I kid, of course. Uh, sort of.
