“very interesting good location”
Reviewed October 18, 2009

worth a trip to stop in it is located right in town near everything else. interesting history about how the gravestones got destroyed. also the amount of small children buried here was very suprising. some of the gravestones hard to read but many of them from the 1700s. if you like old graveyards this is much more convenient than driving all the way to bonaventure.

“A nice piece of history in the middle of the district.”
Reviewed June 30, 2008

We enjoyed the stroll through the cemetary. We had printed out a history sheet on colonial park prior to our visit so we were able to read a bit about the cemetary while walking through. The brief history explaining the head stones mounted on the wall were interesting. A nice cemetary to visit if driving to others isnt possible. Worth the visit.

“Early history!”
Reviewed January 1, 2008

We visited this cemetery yesterday. This was our third visit and it never fails to connect us with the cities, states and our country's earliest history. It also amuses us to no end. Check out the Habersham plot. Dad buried with his wife and both of his son’s and their wives. Dad a staunch loyalist, and both sons dedicated separatists and decorated heroes of the revolution. Bet there was some friction at family get togethers! Also how many tombstones can you find that were altered by Sherman’s bored troops? One gentleman lived an amazing 1700 years!! We love this place and it is always a must see on every visit to Savannah! And when your looking for a quite peacefull place......You found it.

“Walking in History”
Reviewed October 25, 2006

Wether you like history, art, or just need a place to sit down for a while; Colonial Park Cemetery is a nice place to stroll through. The landscape is doted with informational signs about famous historical founders of Savannah, and affords many interesting works of art on its historical gravemarkers.
