“Love this urban cemetery”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Being able to traverse from E. Liberty to E Oglethorpe via Colonial Park Cemetery is something I try to do everytime I walk in Savannah. I love visiting the tombs and reading the inscriptions. Just peaceful and a quiet reminder of the history that has transpired here in Savannah.

“Nice stroll though early Savannah history”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

This cemetery is easily walked within an hour. Not as beautiful as most of the other southern cemeterys we visited but worth a short visit. Most moving were the relocated head stones placed along the wall. You must visit during the day hours as its closed to public at night. Read and print some history of Colonial Park Cemetery online to make your visit more enjoyable.

“Worth the walk through...”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

We took a walking stroll of Savannah with a guide and we stopped along the cemetery. Amazing historical background; after our tour (guides are not allowed inside), we came back to take a more thorough look. No worries if you've been walking all day, there are benches to sit on and rest your weary feet.

No admission fee; open every day until 5:00pm. Easy to get to no matter what part of time you're staying in. Worth the walk through...
