I went to this lovely park on a Monday. Unfortunately the Museum is not open on Mondays. Hoped to return but no such luck. A lovely view of the city and nice escape from the hustle of the LA area. Would liked to have walked but it was not walker friendly.

Recently came up for their "Revolutions2: Album Art" display. Original Roger Deans (Yes artwork) and many others. You are not allowed to photograph, but they have a nice tour book which is free, so you can read up on all the fabulous things you are seeing. Walking through the marble statues makes one feel as if they are in Italy.... More

Grew up in Glendale so it was part of my life. Family interned there. The really are some amazing things to see in a beautiful setting.

In the middle of hassles and hopelessness there is a place of peace in Glendale. This is not the famous burial park with all the hollywood stars, this is where you can find the Hall of The Crucifixion-Resurrection. Not open on Saturdays. Nothing like it anywhere.

I've been going up here for years (I'm on their mailing list so get invites to the art museum openings which are wonderful) and have also taken out of town guests. The entire concept of making a cemetery that is enjoyable for the living is one I appreciate. There are several Forest Lawns in the LA area, but Glendale is... More

This is the first and I think best of the Memorial Parks. My family to 4 generations is interred here, and there is still space for the rest of us. Guess you could say we're repeat customers! Drive slowly around the grounds, if you go to the East you will see the heart shaped Baby Land, always sad to think... More

I had no idea that there were two Forest Lawn Cemeteries! Shame on me for not doing more research. Actually, this was an impromptu visit when I was driving thru LA. Out GPS took us off of Highway 10, thru downtown and directly to the cemetery. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to find any "famous people" - I... More

I've been visiting Forest Lawn in Glendale since I was I kid. Even though I only have one relative whom is buried there, I visit the cemetery often and love walking the grounds. Security paroles the areas often. The mausoleums close at 4:30pm. The park extends the closing time during the spring closing at 6:00pm rather than 5:00pm. The mausoleums... More

I had heard and read so much about this place and boy did it live up to my expectations. it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. It is pristine. The way it is landscaped looked after and the sculptures and art are beautiful but the overriding feeling I got was a tremendous sense of peace.... More
