Relaxing!

I often come to Spring Grove to walk or ride my bike. It's beautiful and so well kept. The grounds staff are pleasant and helpful (in case you get a bit lost) Love Spring Grove!

After taking the 10 week horticulture class led by Steve Foltz at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, I had to come and see Spring Grove. After all, nearly every single plant or tree Steve mentioned in his lecture series, could be found here. There is also a well organized plant/tree guide available that tells you where each plant is... More

This is an unusual combination of a cemetery and an arboretum that works well as there are always people and it does not seem to so lonely for the people put to rest there. As you travel through the self guided tour to visit tombs of important people of the area you can get a small trip through time and... More

Several options for short or long walks. Go to the visitor center for some maps and recommendations from the helpful staff. Whether you are new to the city or a lifelong resident, you will no doubt recognize numerous names on markers and monuments. Newer sections in the back have some non-traditional settings which I enjoyed, and one particularly massive monument... More

The embalming went smoothly and the visitation was nice, with many of my friends showing up, but the final trip to Spring Grove Cemetery was delightful and final. It was a long walk from the hearse to the grave, and I was jolted around a bit. Why in the world did they bury me with my cell phone? Did they... More

While visiting cemeteries is not a common thing to do for pleasure, if you are looking for a great way to exercise with hills, I recommend Spring Grove. What a workout!!! Lots of history is held in this cemetery, stop by the office for brochures and read along your journey. Should you plan to be buried here and/or looking into... More

We visited in January and walked the property. Many beautiful monuments and interesting trees and plantings. If you like history a little planning will make it an educational visit. The Welcome center is outstanding with maps and detailed help in finding ancestors or famous people interred here. Interesting that it is open to bicycles and if you aren't a walker... More
