Beautiful place for a run or historic contemplation

Beautiful landscaping. Wonderful old trees, lakes, fountains and bridges. Historic families of Cincinnati play out through the monuments. Civil War monuments and memorials.

This is not just a cemetery; it is a beautifully maintained garden for visitors to stroll and appreciate in peace and quiet.

This place is very large; so I would be prepared to drive around and just stop when you see something. The atmosphere is very pleasant with lots of big, old trees. Lots of amazing headstones and mausoleums here. I will definitely come back and bring my friends.

If you are interested in really knowing the history of Cincinnati, this is the place to go. The "Who's Who" of Cincinnati are all buried here.

My grandmother, grandfather, and aunt are buried in this historical cemetery. Have visited several times. It's my favorite cemetery. If you go in May, you can enjoy the beautiful flowering trees, the fragrant air, the fascinating statues and headstones. I go not only to "visit" my relatives, but also for the beauty of this lovely place.

It was pretty to walk around and quiet, but I'm not sure it's something I would do again. We were expecting more flowers. It was beautiful and if you're looking for historical stuff this is a great place to go!

This is a beautiful place to wander and roam. Stop in the offices that are on your right when you first come in and pick up a map. It is a huge cemetery and you can go back repeatedly and always see something new.

You can spend hours there just walking around and looking at all the beautiful tombs. I also love to take pictures of it through all the seasons.
