Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum
Ranked #2 of 197 things to do in Cincinnati
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The landscaping of the grounds is superb. So it's a great, quiet pace to have a mid-day break from the office and enjoy a bag lunch.

A beautiful place. My wife and I have almost finished paying off our plot and pre-arranged services. We picked out a hillside spot aa couple of years ago, and made all our arrangements, so that no one has to made those decisions. It's also a nice place to go for a quiet walk or a picnic when the weather permits.

No, this isn't something I normally do, but this cemetery is highly regarded as one of the best around. When I was there, I watched fish swimming in circles to make beds in the sand for mating. It's a park-like setting among the gravestones.

This is a beautiful place to walk or drive through. The trees and plants and monuments are magnificent. Spring brings the flower display and Fall brings the colorful leaf change. It is a horticulturists paradise! Even though it is a cemetary the attraction is more the scenery or plantings, monuments and water features. Many famous, historic or notable Cincinnatians are buried here.

Even if you do not have any loved ones to visit here - it is worth the drive through the cemetery. Stop by the administration bldg and grab a map for the historic portion is fantastic and I was in awe. We actually went to find a loved one & had some difficulty; an employee who had finished his shift stopped and helped us & was the nicest person.
