“Lovely place for a walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have been to the Spring Grove Cemetery several times now for walking and interpretive hikes. You tend to forget it is a cemetery with all the lovely flora. The cypress around the pond is one of my favorite areas. Full of history too - you will see some familiar names on monuments. This place is quite popular for walking and there are even signs suggesting routes by mileage!

“Beautiful cemetery and grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Lots of walkers here, and can't say I blame them. This is a beautiful area, and the landscaping among the stones and monuments is spectacular. Everything good that was said previously, ditto. Glad we visited.

“It's free and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

What more could you want? This cemetery is stunning and free to experience. You can see tombs and monuments dating back to the 17th century. There is gothic and colonial architecture, massive sculptures, busts, and buildings, and beautiful foliage. This is a wonderful place to go to experience history and see beautiful examples of art and architecture - and it's free.

“Wow”

Absolutely beautiful. One of the prettiest places I have ever been in my life, which is crazy because it is a cemetery.

“A journey through life.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The cemetery is a collection of history dating back 250 years with additional room for 300+ years into the future. Specific areas of the grounds have been preserved as they were far back into history. There is a collection of artistic work, floral gardens, monuments that tell stories about Cincinnati's past, military history, water designs, wildlife, chapels, trails, and solitude. The entire grounds come alive in the spring with a floral cascade of unimaginable beauty then quietly embraces the hillsides during long winter spells. It is a "must see" when in Cincinnati.
