It feels a bit wierd reviewing a cemetery as a place to visit but it was truly beautiful and as a fan of celebrity life (and death) definitely worth a look. Free entry. Wouldve been impossible to find had our taxi driver not known the location.

We had my dad's memorial service here many years ago. The staff was very accommodating, and kind. The grounds were nicely laid out.

We found, after searching for a long time, this cozy cemetery for the first time in 1982. Since then we go back every year to this cemetery and enjoy the peace and quietness. During our last visit we were present when Samuel Simon (co-creator of The Simpsons) was buried. The search for the graves of media figures is now a... More

Stumbled upon this cemetery, behind local library and was amazed to see all of the famous stars buried in this cemetery from my youth, such as Don Knotts, Carroll O'Connor (Archie Bunker), girl from Poltergeist movies, Natalie Woods, and most famous Marilyn Monroe her grave was simple with lipstick kiss marks on it. Just wished I had brought flowers. So... More

My wife and boys were shopping in Santa Monica, so I decided to spend a couple of hours checking this out. It was well worth it. Marilyn, Farrah, Dangerfield, Matthou, Lemmon, Bob Crane, Natalie Wood, Dean Martin, Orbison and so many others are laid to rest here. The best advice I can give here, and it really is essential.

It is the place of burial of many famous people. The most famous is Marilyn Monroe. It is very beautiful place to walk around. It is situated in Westwood near Santa Monica. It is little difficult to find, but if you drive in Wilshire Blvd and have a good map, you will get there. Parking is quite easy, we are... More

I went to see Marilyn and her grave was beautiful. the memorial park was quiet small but very peaceful considering its located in a big city. The park had bathrooms for public access and many trees that you can sit under for some shade.

You can drive up and into the cemetery. We used the parkover next door but there isn't a need for that. EASY to walk around because the cemetery is small. Wheelchairs and walkers would be okay. Some benches. Quiet, even though it's right in the middle of busy city. Special place. Try not to miss it. Easy-peasy.
