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.

My Uncle is in here and it is peaceful with nice views and greenery for privacy. Nice for a walk on Sundays as well.

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

Uch a pretty little place hidden between skyscraper buildings, so many famous people have been laid to rest here. Don't forget to kiss Marilyn Monroes plaque.

Just a real change from the hustle and bustle of LA. I was on the Dearly Departed tour(highly recommend) so had a map of who was where. This is no where near the size of Hollywood Forever but still a fair amount of walking. Wear comfortable walking shoes, sunhat, sunglasses and a full water bottle. Really a chance to understand...

We stopped at this cemetery while on a tour for 20 minutes. In that short time I managed to see and take pictures of about 15 celebrity grave sites including Marilyn Monroe and Natalie Wood. There are so many more in such a small area. I could have easily spent an hour here. Hard to find as it is behind... More

We went here to pay our respects to Roy and Barbara Orbison. Also saw Marilyn's and Peggy Lee's memorials. Nice and peaceful, well-kept place to wander amongst the musicians and filmstars for an hour or two.
