  • Fantastic destination for tourists to see some Hollywood history and even better for locals to hang out and catch one of the many events held here. It is a nice walk with plenty to look at besides the uniquely creative gravesites and tombs and headstones. This cemetery has no restrictions when it comes to decorating your plot-so there are quite a few... conversation starters, shall we say. The park is well-maintained, both by staff and the families who care for their loved ones' place of eternal rest. The whole experience is breathtaking from entrance to exit. Make sure to look out as you leave the grounds and you can see the Hollywood sign ahead of you. I have plans to catch a movie here, and I simply must find the concrete couch surrounded by weenie dogs for a fabulous picture 📸
  • Thank you Counselor Norma for helping our family and friends lay our loved one to rest. Davey Bales is at rest, we thank you so much for the plans, beautiful location and working hard with us to make all this possible. Was a beautiful funeral. You calmed our nerves, showed us great information and was super helpful. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We could not have done this without you. From The Wraith band and myself Tiffany Retrozombie, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such wonderful services and memories you provided everyone. Thank you once again.
