“Finally got to pay my respects”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Very hard to find and we just found it by chance. The Memorial Park has quite a few popular movie stars laid to rest there . You need to print out a map from the net of where they are as hard to find otherwise. Staff do not like to tell you. Marilyn Monroe is on the far wall. Dean Martin is also in another wall to the right of Marilyn. Have to look for Don Knotts grave as it was the best. RIP Dino. Didn't meet you in the flesh but finally got to pay my respects.

“Life long dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

This place is so lovely and well kept. I was there to see Marilyn Monore but was pleasantly surprised as to how many where there. The staff was very friendly when we asked about Marilyn's grave. It is hard to locate as it is just up a drive way between two buildings. You can use the Hop on Hop off bus to get there.

“Breathless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We did not seek this venue out, but, when taken there by our private tour guide, we were in awe with our company. A real special moment in time.

“Thought Provoking Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

If you're interested in Hollywood, celebrities and the entertainment world, you'll probably enjoy visiting Westwood simply because of all the memories it will bring back. Marilyn Monroe, Truman Capote, Rodney Dangerfield, Farrah Fawcet, etc. There are so many stars buried there that it's kind of stunning to walk around and see them all so close together - along with the realization that no matter how famous, rich or beautiful you are, we all die. Having said that, I found it a peaceful place that brought back many good memories of those celebrities.

Can easily miss this, but worth finding. Beautiful, well-maintained memorials. Some famous actors, directors, producers interred here.
