  • More than just a cemetery, Forest Lawn Glendale is an important part of LA culture. There are graves of many famous movie stars, but the art and architecture is why you come. The Great Mausoleum is one of the most ornate buildings in LA and has replicas of many famous sculptures in Europe. The Hall of the Crucifixion has one of the largest paintings on earth. The park itself is stunningly beautiful. Eaton truly accomplished his goal of making Forest Lawn a memorial park and I would highly recommend a visit.
  • This is a lovely memorial park with the final resting place of stars from today (Carrie Fischer and Debbie Reynolds) and those of yesterday (Stanley Laurel and Mary Pickford.) It isn't just for film people though; there are 250,000 people interred here. There are no upright grave memorials, but there are some beautiful statues throughout the park. It is a huge place, over 300 acres. A great way to spend an afternoon paying your respects in this beautiful, solemn place.
