Yes, it was surprisingly a good place for birdwatching. We had some time to kill and we visited Forest Lawn. We were surprised to find a Red Tailed Hawk and some Eurasian starlings there. The place was peaceful and this could have been the reason the birds were there. If not for birdwatching, then one could just visit there for... More

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
