“Wander and wonder”

Swan Point Cemetery
Reviewed April 29, 2014

This cemetery is a treasure for anyone intrigued by old headstones, by history, by landscaping, by tree varieties, birds, changing light and by serenity and a sense of time literally standing still.

No photography within the grounds is posted, and that's the right of the managers to enforce. But for those visitors who can simply relax and wander and breathe deeply, this place is a true gem

Although Swan Point is a Cemetery----The grounds are beautifully taken care of. A huge amount of trees have been planted over the years and are marked with the different names of each tree. Between Memorial Day & Labor Day the cemetery is adored with impatiens & begonia's-----The grounds staff are incredible in keeping with the maintenance of the cemetery. It is always in beautiful condition any time of year. It is a serene peaceful place to walk. Lots of historical family plots. Memorials dating back to 1849. Spend a lovely morning or afternoon walking the paths.

This is a very serene place (it's a cemetery) but the grounds are immaculately maintained, and the botanists take care of the plants and trees.

Do not try to take photographs of the gravestones. The security will move you along and explain the policy. Also, do not pull to the side and onto the grass. They dislike that as well.

But for a peaceful place to walk, this is a good place.

This is a very nice cemetery and a great place to take a walk. Take a detour here next time you are walking Blackstone Blvd.
