However, having walked through this cemetery many times over the years, there are definite signs of neglect apparent now. Sad.

A large cemetery tucked against the Pacific Ocean. Lot's of history here. A great place for a quiet walk. Several deer were present during our visit.

the Cemetery is a wonderful place to see history, many of the people who built Victoria are there. I always enjoy visiting an old cemetery when we are on vacation it tell a lot about the history of the city! we could not pull into the cemetery or park on the street around it, we had to use the parking lot of the mini-mart across the street. the view is nice and there was even a deer there!

Not really downtown, but a great sidestep and walk along the coast line - This old cemetery is near the water with the view to the US-Olympic Mountains, has interesting graves (Painters, Explorers, Politicians) to explore and an enormous variety of mature trees from all over the world.

Ross Bay Cemetery is home to quite a few early pioneers of the area, it sits across the street from a small small shopping center and a Starbucks if you are so inclined. The cemetery itself has a view of the Straits of Juan De fuca and Olympic mountains in Washington State. For the true history buff a tour can even be arraigned of the site.
