This huge, beautifully kept area in Griffith Park is the final resting place for many important people, as well as ordinary folk who choose to be buried there.. There are several churches, including a replica of the Old North Church on site. We drove through the park, stopping to visit the memorials, but not the individual graves. The park is dedicated to the history of North America. Particularly impressive is the huge wall of mosaic scenes depicting the "Birth of Liberty" from the voyage of the Mayflower to the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktowne. Also meaningful is the huge bronze September 11th memorial plaque, and the Plaza of Meso-American Heritage, dealing with the early civilizations of Mexico. The Hall of Liberty was closed to the public the day we visited, as a function was going on inside, but use of the restrooms was permitted.
A serene setting with beautiful views of the area, it is a welcome break from the hustle & bustle of the city.
