  • Came here for a beautiful outdoor concert. Not sure if the production value is tied to the specific concert or the venue but it was awesome. Parking was all sold out at the lots they contract with so I ended up parking two blocks north and it wasn't too hard to find. Ample facilities too so overall a great experience.
  • This place isn't just historic or well known because of the people buried here. It is simply beautiful. It's jaw dropping.
  • Love the location. Attention to grieving family - Perfection! Purchased a complete package - plot to monument plus Service. Reassurance Forever!
  • Over priced and they don't even say hello when you come thru the door and they have peacocks running around deficating on Ur granny's grave
  • The cemetery is a true experience. The grounds are flawless with an overwhelming amount of structures. Some structures are gaudy, over-the-top, and superficial, but other internments are modest. For example, Mel Blanc, "The Man of a Thousand Voices," has a simple headstone. The location is right in the middle of Hollywood making it a convenient "must see."
