This cemetery was here way before any of the skyscrapers & highrise office & apatment buildings were built - so they built around the cemetery! It's hidden behind one of the tall glass office buildings but contains much Hollywood history! This is where many celebs are buried: Marilyn Monroe, Heather O'Rourke, Natalie Wood, Fanny Brice, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, Mel... More

There's a hidden cemetery in Westwood where many celebrities are buried, most famously Marilyn Monroe. When I lived in LA I'd take all my out of town guests here. It's a wonderful little park in the midst of the high-rise buildings. From Wilshire turn south at the first driveway east of Glendon Ave.

A place to go to remember the celebrities and stars in an unusual area behind skycrapers which have grown up around the mortuary in westwood, south of Wilshire and east of Westwood Blvd.

It is a little difficult findind this park. There are buildings built all around it. Look for little sign to enter park. I went to see Marilyn Monroe's crypt. Beautiful with fresh red lipstick kisses all around it. Also resting here is Natalie Wood, Farrah Fawcett ,Truman Capote and many others. Very serene here.

We visited this lovely small graveyard in Westwood to pay respect to the most popular Iranian singer of all times, Hayedeh and her younger sister, Mahasti, also a very popular singer. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially when we couldn't find Mahasti's grave one of the staff walked us throuhh the sections to hers. He was very friendly... More

For such a small cemetery, this is the final resting place of many, many stars. The only problem with this cemetery is that it is difficult to find. It is tucked in behind and between some very tall buildings. But once you arrive, you will be amazed by the number of very famous stars in such a small cemetery. My... More

Decided to pay our respects to the wonderful MM after our Christmas cruise. Such a beautiful and peaceful place in the middle of a big city. Being there you feel the peace and can also feel the love that the workers put in this place. I feel as if she finally has a good place to rest. RIPMM.

We were told about this memorial site while on a tour at Sony Studios. Since it was close by we decided to check it out. We were so surprised to find it tucked away behind several skyscrapers in the middle of a busy community. It was difficult to find but so interesting to see. Some of our favorite stars are... More

Wonderful place! As a fan of Marilyn for years could hardly believe that I actually got to visit her resting place. Beautifully quiet and very well maintained. We downloaded information in advance from seeing-stars.com but ensured any reference material stayed in the car out of respect. There was a lavish private comitment taking place whilst we were visitingin the private... More

A visit to this small, almost hidden "park" will find the final resting places of such famous people like Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, Mel Torme, Peter Falk and many others. But be respectful, remember where you are! Some famous people have/had a real sense of humor, on their stone markers. Like Rodney Dangerfield, "There goes the... More
