Jimi Hendrix Park is located next to the Northwest African American Museum in Seattles vibrant Central District, a thriving multi-cultural community near where Jimi Hendrix grew up.

Acreage: 2.3


In 2006, using funding from the 2000 Pro Parks Levy, the old Colman school site was transformed into the park it is today. Named Jimi Hendrix Park, it was opened to the public on June 28, 2006, marking one of the first commemorations of Jimi Hendrixs legacy by the City of Seattle.

Following a year-long public design process, the Friends of Jimi Hendrix Park and the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation, announced the launch of a capital fund-raising campaign to finance construction of the park that will celebrate the life, music and legend of Seattles hometown icon, James Marshall Hendrix.

The park currently offers a large open lawn area, not too many trees (good for flying a kite) and a parking lot. The new design is bold, colorful and electrifying as the parks namesake and aims to transform this empty grassy space into a multi-use location.
