At Sunrise we have 80 acres in Hermantown and another 35 acres in Brimson, much of it still undeveloped, and as you can see an abundance of wildlife. This is called a park because all of head stones are level with the ground. We have many people who walk and exercise on our road system. We have bird watchers, photographers,people who have picnics and visit family plots. We are a country setting in the city.
