A park dedicated to the late, great guitarist Jimi Hendrix will open in his hometown of Seattle next year. Grab a tea beverage and a seat and enjoy the surroundings, Seattle dwellers.
Jimi Hendrix Park was revealed last week at a public meeting at the Northwest African American Museum and will open in 2012! The 2.5-acre park will include stepping stones featuring his lyrics, rain drums, a butterfly garden, a performance area, a sound garden and more. The park is being funded by donations from Jimi's sister, Janie Hendrix, as well as money from the Parks and Green Spaces Opportunity Fund and the Neighborhood Matching Fund Award in Seattle.
