Colonial Park Cemetery (locally and informally, Colonial Cemetery) is a historic cemetery located in downtown Savannah, Georgia. It became a city park in 1896, 43 years after burials in the cemetery ceased.
The cemetery was established in 1750, when Savannah was the capital of the British Province of Georgia, last of the Thirteen Colonies. By 1789 it had expanded three times to reach its current six acres at Abercorn Street and East Oglethorpe Avenue. Savannah's primary public cemetery throughout its 103 active years, its previous names have included the Old Cemetery, Old Brick Graveyard, South Broad Street Cemetery, and Christ Church Cemetery.

A very well kept cemetery in the middle of Savannah. There were multiple security guards around the area while we were here, so it felt safe. There are quite a few graves, and the cemetery is open during daylight hours. A lot of the ghost tours either start here, or make a stop here for some spooky stories.

If you like ghost stories and historical cemeteries then this place is for you. One of many beautiful Savannah parks, but this one has even more history and stories than the others. A must visit when you are in Savannah.

Lots of history there. Well kept and lots of historical markers explaining its history.

The history behind this place is just phenomenal. It's on several of the ghost tours and it is worth taking a tour and going to see in the day time as well. There is no one to give you any information as you go in the gates so it's worth knowing a little about it and doing a little research before going there and if you take a ghost tour it will also tell you a lot of the history behind this cemetery as well.

It’s a very small cemetery and not as pretty as some of the other cemeteries in Savannah. I would suggest visiting this cemetery with a ghost tour. That way you get the history and ghost stories to make the visit worth it.
