Brandon Lee And Bruce Lee's Grave Site Reviews & Ratings
Scary place. However nicely maintained. Wheel chair accessible. You can use public transportation to teach here( Metro route 10). To visit BRUCE LEE you have to walk from bus drop point to all the way up.
Beautiful, well maintained, and peaceful memorial overlooking Lake Washington. There was a constant trickle of those coming to pay tribute as indicated by the piles of fresh flowers and coins. There was a bit of a line, really, but everyone was very respectful, and allowed each party private time and space. I said my quiet hello to the Lee's, took my photo, and brushed a bit of dirt off the back side of the headstones. Advice to future visitors: If there is a crowd, and If you don't have physical access needs, I suggest parking elsewhere on the site and walking to the grave on foot. While there is a road directly behind the site, it's extremely disturbing to the solemn vibe of those gathered for a carload of people to unload right in their midst. Just a suggestion.
It was a really tranquil place to wall through. We started at Volunteer park and then walked to the cemetery. It was a quiet walk, loved all of the trees. The gravesite was in a nice little corner and had a bench to sit.
First of all, it's surprisingly easy to find the grave. Just walk toward the large American flag in front of you when you enter the cemetery. The gravesite is simple and visitors treat it with respect, so it is like visiting any grave in any cemetery.
Near the crest of the hill, center-ish of the cemetery. The headstones face East, and are somewhat hidden behind some 5' tall shrubbery. I was impressed that there was no graffiti. The entire cemetery is beautifully maintained. There are numerous statues and unique headstones.
