The Carpenter, Lakeside, and Springvale Cemeteries are historic cemeteries located on Newman and Pawtucket Avenues in East Providence, Rhode Island. The three cemeteries occupy a triangular area bounded by Newman and Pawtucket Avenues to the east and south, and railroad tracks to the west. Carpenter Cemetery, the oldest, was established in 1844. Springvale was established in 1888 and Lakeside in 1895. The area is one of the few remaining undeveloped areas of what was once a "ring of green" around the historic center of Rehoboth, which was near this area.[2]

The cemeteries were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
