Even walking down all the aisles didn't take long. It's compact and easily missed if not looking carefully for that one small riad between two buildings to drive down to get to it. Everyone is here Marilyn Monroe, Mel Torme, Jack Lemmon, Matthau, Dangerfield, Natalie Wood, Merv Griffin, Farrah Fawcett, Don Knotts, the list goes on and on. No map... More

You have to be in the know to find this place. Even with directions it took us a while but it was well worth it. There are many celebrities buried there but because it is tucked away it is never crowded. Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Don Knotts, Farrah Fawcett, Natalie Wood just to name a few. It is small enough... More

Westwood is tucked behind a library and between some other buildings. We drove around it a couple times before we realized we were right where we needed to be. For a small burial ground, an amazing amount of stars are interred there. Marilyn Monroe is probably the biggest of the big, but so many others rest here as well. Walter... More

"Natalie Wood" and "Marilyn Monroe" memorials draw people here ....but there are so many recognisable names in these quiet surroundings....few people who wander respectfully around while the hustle and bustle of Westwood is just a few steps away

I researched where Marilyn was buried as I am a huge fan and I just had to visit it when I was in L.A. This memorial park is very small but it is absolutely beautiful. It is so quiet and peaceful. Seeing Marilyns grave was breath taking & I actually shed a few tears. Dean Martin & Farrah Fawecett (to... More

Situated in among the tall office buildings in the Westwood section of LA is a small cemetery where many of Hollywood's most popular celebrities are buried. Beautiful grounds and a quiet enviorment make this a very enjoyable visit.

These people, famous and otherwise, are DEAD! Leave them in peace! Other than the fact that once-famous people are buried here, there is nothing remotely interesting about this place.

First off, if you’re getting public transport here then beware of how long this will take. I was staying on the Hollywood Boulevard and thought that this would be a short trip in the morning. I left at 8:30am and didn’t get back until 12:30pm! The bus to Westwood takes 50 minutes and drops you off nowhere near the Memorial... More

Well it took a bit to get here, I was not going to give up and I found it and I was totally overwhelmed. I absolutely adore Marilyn Munroe and I was honored to pay my respects to her and so had others before me. She sure was a truly loved lady. I also paid my respects to Dean Martin,... More

This is a REAL cemetery that is STILL a tourist attraction. Some of the truly greats of Classic Hollywood are laid to rest here. PLEASE SHOW RESPECT! This is a beautiful cemetery hidden right in the middle of the city. We did experience the trouble that everyone else has initially finding this hidden treasure. We went into the library, walked...
