  • Such a peaceful place! I enjoyed walking there, if you want to run don't put your earbuds on, because cars are passing by regularly. Swan point which is near the river is such a quiet place and has a nice view.
  • So beautiful and well maintained. I visit my grandmother there, she was a classy lady and deserved to be laid to rest in a beautiful location!
  • Is this morbid? It's a beautiful place along the river, great place for a quiet walk amid beautiful grounds.
  • A truly stunning garden cemetery. You could spend all day here and still not see the whole thing. No cameras allowed, however!
  • Quite pretty. I learned to drive here as a teen.
