LA Parks: Forest Lawn Memorial Park

by Gabrielle Antonette and Carrie Nusbaum

If you want to be technical, Glendale's Forest Lawn is a cemetery, and there are a lot of things live people can't (and shouldn't) do there. We define "park" pretty broadly, and so we think it's worth visiting if you happen to be in the area. It's a large space, good for walking or driving around and exploring, and perhaps more importantly, it's beautiful. At the very top there are great views in every direction,  as well as some sort of little art museum (which we didn't have the pleasure of visiting ourselves).
