Peaceful in Glendale
Visit Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale
Located in the heart of Los Angeles just off the intersection of the 5 and 2 freeways, Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale offers a peaceful and pondering escape from city strains.
The park's undulating lawns, bountiful fountains, and tall trees bring tranquility as you walk along the sloping paths to discover renowned artwork—including famous oil paintings, venerable stained-glass, and eminent statuary.
The views are beautiful from atop Forest Lawn’s hillside, with bustling streets below distant enough to seem calm, and the surrounding San Gabriel Mountains adding depth and texture. You can visit the Forest Lawn Mausoleum, the Garden of Honor, and the on-site Art Museum.
Parking is available at the entrance on S. Glendale Ave.; park hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Remember to mind the privacy of other visitors and the solemnity of the park. No dogs.
