Swan Point is one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever seen. It is so beautiful that the local residents often use the facilities for their morning running and/or walking. It is a truly comforting place for those who have lost loved ones.

I've gone here several times with friends to have lunch and walk around to view the historic stones. Also a nice, peaceful place to read or just think......

Swan Point is close to my house and is designed in a lovely fashion. I sometimes peddle through there on my bike, peacefully enjoying the plantings. They have their own nursery the supplies their own flowers and shrubs. It feels strange commenting on a cemetery...More

We came to Providence for the NecronomiCon Lovecraft convention/conference and of course visited HP Lovecraft's grave. This is a beautiful, garden-type cemetery. The grounds are very well-kept and peaceful.

Beautiful cemetery with some interesting stones. Very large but easy to navigate. The most well known grave is HP Lovecraft and google maps will direct you right to it.

The cemetery is beautiful, and home to the graves of many interesting people, such as General Ambrose Burnside and H.P. Lovecraft.

This very large and old cemetery is well kept and well managed. Our family has had a plot here for many generations. The grounds are impeccable and the setting is respectful and pristine. Many historical markers and a good directory search available at the entrance.

This is a beautiful and historical cemetery that offers beautiful waterfront views as well, there are many nooks and crannies to discover, amazing sculptured stones and lovely walkways. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area. It's beautiful year round.

Great place to stroll. Swan Point is perfection in the quality of the care that is maintained. Perhaps strange to say about a cemetery especially one this size but a must for those not only who want to find what famous people are buried here...More

I could spend hours here. It's so peaceful and calm. It's along the river so the views are incredible. It is very quiet. It is very big and has so many older sites to see some history from the area. My friends and I try...More

I've seen some things that people leave by a niche. But call the office. They are very helpful and will tell you what is allowed.
