We went there one afternoon for family pictures to be taken, 5 children ages 4 to 16. Doesnt feel like a cemetery. Beautiful well kept gardens. The kids enjoyed being with their parents, without electronics or other distractions. We walked around the old churches and gazebos and ponds and simply enjoyed being in a beautiful, open, quiet place.

Spring Grove is like Paris, beautiful in all seasons. The trees are always the backbone for the interesting iconography of the monuments and the flowers and fall colors and wonderful vistas. All of this makes it one of the real Queen City Gems! If you have not been go!

I used to live in Cincinnati and have visited the Spring Grove Cemetery many times. Just driving through the little tunnel at the entrance gives me a sense of peace. I have often driven and/or walked through these winding roads, admiring the lakes, trees, grass, flowers and monuments, moving in awe through the beauty of this gently rolling final resting... More

This large, historical cemetery is awesome, and offers many activities to the Cincinnati arena. My mother is interred there, and when I visit, I may encounter joggers, families having picnics, weddings, concerts, or a group of people taking a historical walking tour.

The Spring Grove Cemetery is a serene, lush, beautifully landscaped cemetery. It is open to the public, a quiet, welcoming place to take a brief or long walk. There is an endless number of tree and plant varieties that adorn the grave sites.

The cemetery is as beautiful and peaceful. Despite the fact that it is filled with beautiful monuments to those since passed, it feels very much like a park to walk through, to sit and read, to ride bikes and to take pictures. I could easily imagine taking daily strolls there, and highly recommend it for anyone craving some serenity. Find... More

While my many visits to this cemetery initially was to 'visit' my grandparents with my father or mother, it was during my dad's class in landscape as an elective for his graduate courses dos I understand the beauty of this place. If you have visited Central Park you will see the finger print of his designs here from his student... More

I love history and thoroughly enjoyed driving through and occasionally getting out to read headstones & monuments. This place is huge, I wish we lived closer because it would take a long time to really see it. No cemetery where we live has such incredible monuments. be sure and pick up a brochure with a map and some points of... More
