I love to bring a bottle of wine and 7-8 of my closest friends to enjoy the tranquility and peacefulness of this memorial park. It is nice to get some KFC and some beer or wine and just relax. If you can sneak in at night, it is nice to lay down a blanket and just look at the stars.

I personally enjoy spending my free time a the various memorial parks throughout Los Angeles. Pierce Brothers may be hard to find and smaller then Forest Lawn, but they have a lot of notible people interned there. Marilyn Monroe is who most people what to see, but there are so many other famous stars there. Seek and you shall fine.....

This site is like an oasis amongst the high rise buildings. Very peaceful and well tended. It is fairly difficult to find the burial place, although we found Marilyn Munroe's fairly quickly, Many are in the grass so if the grass is wet you will get your shoes wet.

This cemetery is nestled among the tall buildings. When you are there you forget about the fact that you are in a big city and the heavy traffic is a few yards away. It's small, quiet and well kept. I'm glad I went.

When you go to LA (Westwood area) do not miss the Pierce Brothers Memorial Park. It is difficult to find but very near UCLA. It sits between some tall buildings but when you find it you will be amazed at all the celebrities that are found there. Just to name a few Farrah Fawcett, Merv Griffin, Don Knotts, Peter Falk,...

Was at Westwood a few years ago with a friend who knew where to enter. Looks like you are going into an apartment complex, not seen from the street and no prominent signage, so you better have a map or updated GPS! Yes, Marilyn is there and her crypt is stained with lipstick from fans kissing the front. But also... More

Yes, it was a little tough to find. The place was not as I have imagined. It has more of a "Park" feel to it. This is a place to be if you need a moment of solitude and peace from the city of LA. Saw a number of show biz stars. Surprise to see the grumpy old man stars,... More

It's really tough to find. I can't even give advice on how to get there. But if you can find it, you'll see Marilyn Monroe's grave, Truman Capote, Donna Reed, Bob Crane, Fanny Brice, Jack Lemmon, etc. It's a small place and there won't be many people around. You're surrounded by big office towers, but it's strangely tranquil. Well worth... More

I have been here so many times and it's a little gem in the Los Angeles area, not too far from Westwood. From the street, Wilshire, you'd never believe there's a cemetery and you have to be careful to turn properly into the driveway so as not to miss it. Graves of some very famous people here - Truman Capote,... More
