    More like a park
    Our GPS kept routing us through the cemetery otherwise I may not have walked through. The cemetery is well kept and it felt more like a park each time we walked though with kids on the grass and dogs running around. As others have said the grave markers are old and eroded making most very difficult to read.

    The history of Savannah in the center of the city
    The Colonial Cemetery is the place to be for history buffs. We had a long walk on the peaceful lawns old cemetery finding the tombstones of military leaders and governers of Savannah of the course of three centuries. The tombstones have very clear signage on the signing posts with metal plates standing next to the graves. It was a dive in the Savannah’s past.

    Beautiful and Historic
    First, I'd highly recommend grabbing a cemetery brochure from one of the Savannah visitor's centers! The brochure has points of interest and some history of the cemetery. The cemetery itself was beautiful and solemn, and a great place to learn about some Savannah history. Although the gravestones were very worn down, there were multiple signs to read!

    Peaceful
    Call it morbid but I love strolling through old cemeteries. It's peaceful and educational. I always find interesting tombstones with quirky engravings and beautiful statues. The quirkiness of this cemetery is that the area where duels were fought is just outside of the cemetery (now a playground)

Walking through this place leaves you in awe. The years have washed away the faces of the headstones but the old oak trees spread their branches over the souls who lay to rest in this beautiful venue.

The first time my wife & I walked by the Colonial Park Cemetery we barely noticed it. But on our next day's wander around the Historic District we realized the significance of these 6 acres of burial grounds established in 1750. There's lots of history to be discovered & learned here while you are otherwise using it as a shortcut to a further destination, so we recommend you linger for a bit.

I’m a big fan of old cemeteries and love strolling around checking out the gravestones from many years past. I find a lot of solitude walking around and thinking about the lives of the people buried there. I love reading about the people and reflecting on the historical aspect of the information.

This cemetery occupies a large space, but the gravestones are few and far between and, scattered around. Unfortunately the type of material used for these stones have not withstood climate and time. There are very few that you can actually read.

I still enjoyed my time there, but would have to say it was only an average experience.

Colonial Park Cemetery is well kept. Unfortunately, due to the age of the headstones, they are very difficult or impossible to read.

We walked around looking at the stones that are still legible. So many died young. It was calm and peaceful.

I actually loved this cemetery. It had lots of character. I liked the different plaques that told about different people. It’s very interesting, very clean cemetery and beautiful setting.
