We had some time to kill and wanted to get in a little exercise. This was the perfect place for a nice, peaceful stroll. The landscaping, monuments and water features where lovely. There was a pond with ducks and swans. We took a few pictures and they all turned out visually pleasing. Plenty of parking and benches to rest.

Went to Spring Grove Cemetery to Walk around with teenagers and see the historic monuments and arboretum. Stopped at the administration building to use the restrooms and pick up a brochure and was greeted by a wonderful staff member who offered us coffee and water, some very good brochures containing maps and descriptions of several of the family plots and points of historic interest. the staff member also spent about 15 minutes giving us some background on the cemetery including that it was the biggest non profit cemetery in the country and answering our questions helping to direct us toward some places to see as it is a very large place. She also told us they have family nights onTuesdays during the summer and segway and tram tours when the weather was warmer. We will definitely go back in the Spring. For people who need to stop for a light meal or snack, there is a Frisch's Restaurant right down the street.

Spring Grove is one of America's great cemeteries and worth a visit for the history, horticulture and art there. One of America's largest cemeteries, the arboretum on the grounds makes it one of the city's most beautiful parks, too. A variety of tours are offered - check the website to see what might be available at the time of your visit. Even if there are no organized tours, a drive or walk around the historic portion (located in the front of the large facility) will reveal a host of wonderful examples of plants and art. From elaborate to simple, the cemetery is home to many of the city's most famous residents and never fails to amaze friends when they visit the city. Spring Grove is truly one of the gems in the Queen City's crown.

I visited with my daughter who lives in Cincinnati. It may sound strange to visit a cemetery, but this one is unlike any I have seen before. It is a beautiful and tranquil place to visit and take a walk in the fall. Also a wonderful place to take pictures.

I have been to Spring Grove many times. Its a great place to take a walk with family and admire the beautiful lake. There's a couple of swans that are usually there.
