I am glad I researched the directions, it is hidden between two skyscrapers and you have to drive/walk down a small driveway to get there. Small, beautiful and peaceful full of stars . I had no map of the graves ( and the office was not friendly ) or anyother information about the cemeteray ( size , history etc) but... More

My favorite cemetery in Hollywood. Small, quaint, peaceful, serene. A-listers buried here. Especially enjoyed Rodney Daingerfield's gravesite.

Don, Knotts, Marilyn Monroe, Rodney Dangerfield ("There goes the neighborhood"), Jack Lemmon (my favorite) - many celebrities and interesting quips on their tombstones but also many moving immigrant stories told. Interesting to note the changing demographics of the area, too. Also, this is an enchanting oasis of green and trees in the center of Wilshire Boulevard concrete.

You can pay your respects to Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood, Farrah Fawcett, and Roy Orbison, and, of course, Marilyn Monroe. But a couple of people passed through here without burial. Gene Kelly was cremated here and ashes scattered at sea, as was Janis Joplin. It's not a bit morbid and has beautiful grounds and trees. But... More

There are celebrities almost everywhere you turn here. Very small and hidden behind skyscrapers, but peaceful and beautifully maintained. Pay your respects to all these great entertainers!!

This cemetery is famous because Marilyn Monroe and many other famous people are buried here. Some of the gravestones even have pictures of the departed lasered right on the stone in such detail that is looks like a picture. Worth the trip if you know about our pop entertainment culture.

Neat place to go if love cemeteries and movie stars. Find a map online. It helps find some of the stars burial sites. Stars like Marylin Monroe, Dean Martin, Don knotts, Donna Reed, Natalie Wood, Rodney Dangerfield, Walter Matheau, Bob Crane, Truman Capote, Jim Backus and many more. It is a small cemetery so you can find everyone very easily... More

Along with Hollywood Forever, this is one of the few memorial parks which allows you to 'star gaze among the graves' and pay your respects to your favourite stars. This surprisingly small park is nestled at the foot of many multi-storey buildings but is 'home' to a large number of very famous names.

Whilst on a tour of LA (We Love LA - excellent, see my separate review) our driver/guide made a sudden detour and pulled in here (not on our itinerary). We initially thought he was stopping at a shop or a restroom as he pulled off an incredibly busy street and drove up an alleyway amongst the office blocks. Slightly surreal... More
