Forest Lawn in Glendale was once the most popular attraction in the area, and that's exactly what the owner had planned when he purchased and revamped this cemetery. It's definitely worth driving around and strolling through the places you can. But while it's the resting place of hundreds of stars, don't expect to see a lot of them. It's ironic... More

There are several Forest Lawn cemeteries in the Los Angeles area. We went to the Glendale Forest Lawn which is a nice place with history and peaceful. We paid our respects.

We were reviewing what to see in Glendale and came across information about the Trilogy Collection in the Mausoleum and Hall. The buildings contain lovely statuary, stained glass windows, and large wall murals. As an example, The Last Supper Window is a rendition of the da Vinci masterpiece made by Italian stained glass artisans in the 1920's under contract with... More

YOU may not think of a Cemetery asa tourist attraction, but Forrest lawn is; home to many famous deceased folk, it is beautifully laid out and my recent attendance at a funeral there was sad but the staff bent over backwards to accommodate. They have souvenirs, and gifts and it is not moronic to think of purchasing something there as... More

A five-star place. Forest Lawn in Glendale, is a lovely, scenic and quiet cemetery to spend time with those who have passed. Really, it is like a great park with rolling hills, statues, a chapel and much more. So much history is here and in grand style. Forest Lawn is massive and spread out, so you will need a car,...

I had just seen the movie 'The Loved One' (1965) that was shot here and wanted to peruse the grounds looking for some of the locations. The park is beautiful and very peaceful and quiet so trekking up and around the grounds was a treat. I made it to the very top of the property and came upon a gallery... More

We attended a service at the Church of the Recessional and were greatly impressed by the staff and facilities. The museum was lovely as well as the Esplanade - - offering wonderful views and environment for an outdoor reception. There are celebrity grave sites throughout which may be of interest. Allow time for the museum, visiting the various church sites... More
