Westwood Village Memorial Park

pbwmpSimply put, there is no better cemetery in the world as far as bang-for-your-buck celebrity graves are concerned.  This tiny memorial park, nestled within a single city block just off of Wilshire Blvd. in the village of Westwood is a dream for anyone who is interested in celebrity grave spotting. Boasting enormous names and a compact, easy to wander space, you practically trip over one celebrity after another as you make your way around it.  The staff is friendly and the park offers a decent amount of peace and quiet in a very busy part of Los Angeles.  It can be a little tricky to locate (its only entrance is from the west on Glendon Ave.) but once you are inside, you’ll be amazed at how much time you can spend exploring such a small and unassuming plot of land.
