Losing my mom recently, I visit this place almost every week. This is a place, where you can find peace and quiet in the nature. I feel so rested and relaxed in this park, that l can stay there for hours.

We visited this place because it was convenient to where we were. We did not have a plan or an agenda to visit famous graves but we were surprisingly pleased with the beauty and serenity offered here. Much history with some beautiful monuments and murals. The founder's intentions were that this be more than a final resting place. He wanted... More

Went to see my friend's mom. She was near Bette Davis, Liberacci, Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. Lovely, gracious, quiet. Staff was helpful. Great view of Griffith Park and the Valley. Respectful. Worth a leisurely stroll.

Forest Lawn in Glendale was once the most popular attraction in the area, and that's exactly what the owner had planned when he purchased and revamped this cemetery. It's definitely worth driving around and strolling through the places you can. But while it's the resting place of hundreds of stars, don't expect to see a lot of them. It's ironic... More

We were reviewing what to see in Glendale and came across information about the Trilogy Collection in the Mausoleum and Hall. The buildings contain lovely statuary, stained glass windows, and large wall murals. As an example, The Last Supper Window is a rendition of the da Vinci masterpiece made by Italian stained glass artisans in the 1920's under contract with... More

YOU may not think of a Cemetery asa tourist attraction, but Forrest lawn is; home to many famous deceased folk, it is beautifully laid out and my recent attendance at a funeral there was sad but the staff bent over backwards to accommodate. They have souvenirs, and gifts and it is not moronic to think of purchasing something there as... More
