Although the mailing address is on Greenleaf Blvd., the one-way entrance is on S. Central Ave. It is directly across the street from Lincoln Memorial Park.

Established in 1871 as Compton Rural Cemetery, Woodlawn Memorial Park is one of the oldest cemeteries in Los Angeles County. Prior to being officially named for the use of the settlers in the area, it was part of the Rancho San Pedro land grant. Markers for a few earlier burials have also been found.

At present the gates are locked and the cemetery is inaccessible due to ongoing financial issues with the administration.
