  • The cemetery is quite scenic and a short walk from the Volunteer Park. The highlight for me is Bruce and Brandon Lee's grave site. I grew up watching Bruce films and I was glad to able to pay my respect to the Master in person.
  • Clean and well taken care of. Home to Bruce and Brandon Lee’s graves. The amount of people that have come through there has taken its toll on the ground right at the site but the groundskeepers have done a very good job of upkeep
