History and description

Oakwood Memorial Park is located in the San Fernando Valley, surrounded by rocky hills that have served as a backdrop for many a film setting. It has been used as a cemetery since 1924, and there was a Native American graveyard next to the cemetery before a fire destroyed the old wooden crosses that marked the site. The Old Stagecoach Trail passed beside it. The historic Chatsworth Community Church is located within the cemetery grounds.
