Visiting family relatives on my fathers side. Family plot established early 1900 in early Forest Lawn from father to great grandparents Lovely site and well maintained by staff. Peaceful with interesting views. Will be back, many other things to see and do here. Great place to see

Like others it seems odd to rate a resting place for those who have departed the Earth ... Look instead as a celebration of life. Our kids were so amazed and interested in the architecture, number of graves, and the stars that are resting behind the massive iron gates. Utilize online sources to follow the way to many sites and... More

My wife and I attended a funeral for a family member recently. The place was very close to the 134 highway but it was very quiet and peaceful. It looks more like a family park than a cemetery.

Peaceful and quiet, yes. But you have a taste for the unusual and you like to visit the graves of celebrities who have passed on, this is one of the best places to find them. There are more than thousand famous people buried or interred here @ Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale. Most of them are easily accessable, especially... More

Donald Trump ... who has the new rich taste of a bottom feeding Catfish ... would call this place "CLASS ... REAL, REAL CLASS !!" This place should definitely be in the last place position in everybody's "Bucket List." Just get it over with, go there once and get out while you're still alive and not asphyxiated by the "Kitsch",... More

This is not they type of place you want to visit if this is your first time in LA . This is the type of place you visit after you've been to LA several times. What you might want to do prior to your visit is to see if your star is actually buried at this location, I believe there... More

It appears most of the patrons are dead. There's no coffee shop or bar. Entertainment options are very limited. Not sure it's worth a stop.

The is the most elegant of the Forest Lawn Parks in the area. Plots are more expensive at the Glendale Forest Lawn than at the nearby park Hollywood Hills. But this park is more centrally located and longer standing, so people are willing to pay the higher price. Overall, a beautiful cemetery.

I have quite a few relatives buried here and I am proud they are here. It is a cemetery but it also has other perks and quirks. The walk above the hills and the view is breathtaking on certain locations of the park. I've been visiting since I was a kid back in the 80's and it's always been a... More
