Very interesting cemetery, with a lot of celebrities buried here. It is just adjacent (along its rear boundary) to the old Paramount Pictures studio lot. An interesting grave to visit is that of Nelson Riddle, the musical legend who wrote (among other tunes) the old...More

We walked from Hollywood and it was an easy half and hour. On entering the peace and serenity was wonderful. We spent time wandering around the different areas of the cemetery. It is a clean and well cared for resting place. Very impressive.

Was not that much enjoyable knowing no celebrity. Nice park anyway, with a view on Paramount's Studio water tank.

A beautiful and tranquil oasis in the middle of Hollywood with a lot of Hollywood history as numerous celebrities are buried here. The cemetery is well-maintained and the lake is beautiful. There are even peacocks who live there and roam the grounds.

There is no need for a tour. You can just walk at your own pace. You can do some research online at their website.
